It is worth noting that the crash of military aircraft in Russia has recently become quite common.
For example, a MiG-31 fighter jet of the Russian Aerospace Forces crashed in Russia. It was allegedly conducting a training flight in the Kamchatka Territory.
Earlier it was reported that a Russian MiG-31 supersonic fighter jet crashed in the Murmansk region of the Russian Federation. Both pilots ejected, and the plane crashed into a lake near the city of Monchegorsk.
On 25 June, it was reported that a plane carrying Russian all-around flight champion Yevgeny Bezsmertny crashed near Moscow. He was flying his Yak-52 aircraft with a passenger on board for a training flight, during which he was practising aerobatics in preparation for a competition.
