A pensioner from Chernigov, who shot down a Russian plane with a hunting rifle, was awarded a medal "For assistance in protecting the state border." Valery Fedorovich fired several shots at the Su-34 fighter.

For selflessness, the head of the State Border Service, Sergei Deineko, awarded the pensioner. This was announced on August 19 by the press service of the department.

Fedorovich left a trophy as a souvenir - a piece of a downed aircraft.

“On the second lap, as I went (Russian fighter. - Ed.), I was from mine, guys, from mine, and wow - and fell,” he recalled.
