    A Russian fighter jet has crashed in a burning wreck close to the Ukrainian border.

    A video shows the burned wreckage of the fighter in Russia's Belgorod region which shares frontiers with the Luhansk, Kharkiv and Sumy regions of Ukraine.

    The cause of the crash was not immediately clear amid suspicions it could have been shot down and the crash site is some 32 miles from the Ukrainian border.

    The pilot safely ejected, according to Russian reports, which denied it was hit by Ukraine.

    The Russian Western military district said the Su-25 was on a training flight rather than a combat mission and suggested a “technical malfunction” as a possible cause.
