The plane was shot down
Russia says Ukraine used British-made long-range missiles to target civilian areas in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk, injuring six children.
The United Kingdom on Thursday became the first country to supply Kyiv with long-range cruise missiles, which will allow it to hit Russian troops and supply dumps far from the front lines.
“Storm Shadow air-to-air missiles supplied to the Kyiv regime by Great Britain were used for the strike, despite declarations in London that these weapons would not be used against civilian targets,” the defense ministry of Russia said.
It added that Russia downed two Ukrainian planes – a Su-24 and a MiG-29 – that launched the missiles.
