The “air group most likely fell into an air ambush,” said Kommersant.

The jets were supposed to launch a coordinated missile and bomb attack on Ukraine’s Chernihiv region, while the helicopters were there to provide support and to pick up Su crews if they were shot down, the outlet reported, citing preliminary data.
