Russian SU-25 Fighter Jet plunges into Abrau Lake in Krasnodar Krai


Reports from Russian and Ukrainian Telegram channels have surfaced, indicating that an SU-25 fighter jet belonging to the Russian Air Force has crashed into Abrau Lake in Krasnodar Krai. The incident unfolded approximately 14 kilometers from Novorossiysk and approximately 200 kilometers from the Temporarily-Occupied Crimea region.

The SU-25, developed by the Soviet Union, is a highly versatile ground-attack aircraft primarily designed to provide close air support to ground forces. It has been widely used by both the Russian Air Force and the Ukrainian Air Force. The aircraft is known for its robust construction, maneuverability, and ability to operate in various weather conditions. With a maximum speed of around 975 kilometers per hour and a range of over 1,000 kilometers, the SU-25 has been deployed in various conflicts and military operations.

Abrau Lake, the site of the recent crash, is situated in the Krasnodar Krai region of Russia. Located approximately 14 kilometers northwest of the coastal city of Novorossiysk, the lake is renowned for its picturesque beauty and crystal-clear waters. It attracts tourists and visitors from near and far, who come to enjoy its tranquil ambiance and engage in various recreational activities such as boating and fishing. The incident has come as a shock to the local community and has generated considerable attention due to its proximity to a popular tourist destination.

Novorossiysk, the nearby city, is a major seaport located on the northeastern coast of the Black Sea. It serves as an essential hub for both commercial and military shipping, connecting Russia with various international trade routes. The city has strategic significance due to its proximity to the Black Sea and its vital role in facilitating maritime activities.

The mention of “Temporarily-Occupied Crimea” in the reports refers to the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed by Russia in 2014. The annexation of Crimea has been a highly contentious issue, resulting in heightened tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The region is currently under Russian control, but it is internationally recognized as part of Ukraine. The designation “Temporarily-Occupied Crimea” reflects the viewpoint of the Ukrainian government and many other countries that consider the Russian presence in Crimea as an illegal occupation.

As the details surrounding the SU-25 crash in Abrau Lake emerge, authorities will initiate investigations to determine the cause of the incident.
