MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian military aviation did not perform any tasks near the Syrian city of Aleppo where media reports say a fighter jet was downed, Russian Defense Ministry’s official spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Tuesday.
"Russian Aerospace Forces’ aviation did not perform any military tasks in the city of Aleppo or around it," Konashenkov said.
Videos were earlier posted to social networks that show a fighter jet crashing near Aleppo. Several media reported that Syrian opposition groups downed a fighter jet of Syrian Air Force when launching an offensive at government positions to the south of Aleppo.
A military-diplomatic source told TASS earlier today that the crashed fighter jet might have been a Su-22 of the Syrian Air Force.
