Bodies of crew members of the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft shot down on February 23 found in Russia

In Russia, the bodies of crew members have been found at the crash site of the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft shot down the day before, on February 23. At least ten Russian invaders were killed.

This was reported by the Russian Telegram channel VChK-OGPU. The crew members of this rare reconnaissance aircraft are artificial specialists whose training requires a lot of time and money.

"As it became known to the VChK-OGPU, the remains of 10 dead crew members were found at the crash site of the A50 reconnaissance aircraft in the Krasnodar Territory," the statement said.

In total, 15 Russian specialists could have been on board the downed plane. According to open-source data, the A-50 crew consists of 5 flight crew members and 10 radar operators.

Those on board had no chance of survival: the plane had neither parachutes nor catapults, aviation expert Kostiantyn Kryvolap said on We Are Ukraine.

According to him, the Russians may not have seen the need for such precautions, as they believed that aircraft like the A-50 could not be shot down.

"You see, these aircraft are not shot down. It is considered impossible to shoot down such an airplane. And when it was shot down for the first time, I said that now all these commanders should shave their heads bald, anoint their heads with brilliant green, and commit hara-kiri. Because this is a shame that cannot be washed away," emphasized Kryvolap.

As a reminder, on the evening of February 23, a Russian A-50U long-range radar detection and control aircraft was shot down over the Sea of Azov. The downed aircraft went down in the Krasnodar region of the Russian Federation. It was a joint operation of the Main Intelligence Directorate and the Air Force.

Before the full-scale invasion, Russia had only nine such aircraft: three A-50s and six A-50Us.

The occupiers use A-50 and A-50U aircraft to detect and track air and surface targets, to alert command posts of automated control systems of the armed forces about the air and surface situation, to control fighter and strike aircraft when they are guided at air, land, and sea targets, and they can also serve as an air command post.

The A-50 airborne surveillance aircraft are very valuable to the Russians. They play the role of correctors during the massive shelling of Ukraine and are worth at least $330 million.

It was believed that these aircraft could not be shot down. However, the Ukrainian Defense Forces first shattered this stereotype on January 14, when they shot down two Russian occupation aircraft over the Sea of Azov. An A-50 long-range radar detection and control aircraft was shot down and an Il-22 was damaged.

For the second time, the myth about the indestructibility of the Russian A-50 was refuted the day before.
