A short video surfaced online just showing MiG-29 appears taking off just seconds before the artillery struck the runway.
Even if the video is not very high quality, the aircraft seems to be painted in the Ukrainian Air Force pixelated camouflage.
It was not possible to completely verify the video, but at a close look, it appears to be authentic and not extracted from video games.
The exact date and location of the filming is unknown, however, most sources seem to agree that it could have been recorded during the very first days of the Russian invasion because of the number of attacks on Ukrainian airfields in that timeframe and the vegetation shown in the video.
Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it has been said that Russia has completely destroyed all Ukrainian fighter planes, but this information has been disputed.
