Two Ukrainian fighter jets were shot down by pro-Russian rebel fighters, a spokesman for Ukraine’s military said early Wednesday morning.

The spokesman said the jets were shot down near Savur Mogila in the eastern part of Ukraine.

It’s not clear yet what happened to the pilots.

The planes were Sukhol-25 fighters.

Defense Ministry spokesman Oleksly Dmitrashkovsky said the planes could have been carrying up to two crew members, The Associated Press reported.
