Old War Video: Russian MiG-29 Shot Down Georgian UAV

A Russian jet shot down a Georgian reconnaissance drone flying over Abkhazia on 20 April 2008. However, Russia denied responsibility for the incident and Abkhazia claimed that the drone was shot down by an “L-39 aircraft of the Abkhaz Air Force”. An allegation of an attack by a NATO MiG-29 Fulcrum was made by the Russia’ Ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin. NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer commented that “he’d eat his tie if it turned out that a NATO MiG-29 had magically appeared in Abkhazia and shot down a Georgian drone.” On 26 May 2008, a United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia (UNOMIG) investigation concluded that the jet belonged to the Russian Air Force; it was either a MiG-29 Fulcrum or a Su-27 Flanker
