The bomber crashed in a wooded and low-land area. The combat plane performed its training flight without an ammunition load and the crash caused no damage on the ground, it said.

“A commission of the Eastern Military District has been sent to the incident site to establish the causes and circumstances of the crash,” the press office said.

The Su-34 multirole supersonic fighter-bomber is designated to effectively strike enemy ground and air targets day and night in any weather conditions.
