It's still unclear whether a technical malfunction, operator error or combat damage caused this loss.
Or is that a tendency of the SU-34.
Gee, that's very....unsurprising. Worldwide evidence show that proper sex ed (not abstinence only) and ready access to contraception results in the lowest abortion rates - even where abortion is legally available.
You can make out all the distinctive features of a Slava-class cruiser. Especially, the four slanted sets of P-500 or P-1000 hypersonic cruise missile launchers can be seen in the smoke.
