Some accounts said the pilots were later picked up by a Russian helicopter in an emergency rescue swoop to stop them falling into Ukrainian hands. 

Reports said the drama was near Balakliia, in the Kharkiv region, a key railway junction.

Yet the loss of the plane is another blow to Vladimir Putin’s faltering war effort, which is now especially targeting eastern Ukraine.

It is as yet unclear how the Ukrainians downed the Su-34 but it is believed to have been a surface-to-air missile.

A pro-Ukrainian report said: ‘Information from eyewitnesses. Two helicopters flew to the area of the hit plane, one of them landed twice.

‘It looks like they took away pilot-killers.’
