Video taken from WarLeaks – Military Blog. – Clear footage of a 99% Russian SU-25 Frogfoot combat mission in the area of Kherson shows the warplane taking a direct hit by the missile of an Ukrainian MANPADS (Man-portable air-defense system) without any effect.
The plane keeps flying and continues its strike before deploying flares to avoid furter heat detection by other Ukrainian anti-air missiles. At 0:34 the self-destruction of another assumed Ukrainian anti-air missile can be witnessed.
