2 Ukraine fighter jets shot down by pro-Russian rebelsPro-Russian rebels have shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets, a spokesman for Ukraine's military operations said on Wednesday.
The spokesman said the two Sukhoi-25 fighters were downed around 1:30 p.m. local time near Savur Mogila in eastern Ukraine.
No details were known about the pilots, but defence officials said the planes may have been carrying up to two crew members each.
I don't profess to know the cause or history of strife that motivates these rebels to do what they do, but perhaps there is a better way to go about getting their point across, especially when you can't tell the difference between fighter jets like the ones shot today and a commercial airliner like the one shot down a few days ago.
I'm just saying.
