Ukraine’s Ghost of Kyiv

Weekly Updates

Date:

On Friday, social media users shared clips that showed a dog fight between a Ukrainian MiG-29 jet and a Russian jet where the Ukraine’s Ghost of Kyiv came out victorious.

Many call the mysterious pilot a hero and the “first European Ace since World War II.”

“Throughout the conflict in Ukraine seen today, there is one Ukrainian MiG-29 Fighter Jet that is soaring through the skies of Kyiv, this single fighter jet has already earned itself an alias, the ‘Ghost of Kyiv’, and has already downed SIX Russian aircraft.” wrote Twitter user @B_B_spear.

Although unconfirmed, the Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter pilot has reportedly downed 6 Russian aircraft, making the pilot a flying ace. A flying ace is a term given to a fighter jet pilot with five or more confirmed kills of enemy aircraft in aerial combat.

Is The Ghost Of Kyiv Real?

However, there are speculations that the “Ghost of Kyiv” is not real but instead, a mythical hero devised to strengthen Ukrainians’ morale in the face of the Russian invasion.

There is zero evidence that the “Ghost of Kyiv” exists; Ukrainian authorities have not confirmed their existence.

However, in a Facebook post on Thursday, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s armed forces, said at least six Russian planes and two helicopters had been destroyed on the first day of fighting.

“Please let the Ghost of Kyiv be real,” wrote Twitter user Jason Calacanis.

“I’m begging major media to report on whether ‘The Ghost of Kyiv’ really exists—as if it’s true that today a heroic Ukrainian fighter pilot single-handedly downed *6* Russian jets, this flying ace immediately becomes a stirring symbol of Ukraine’s resistance to Putin’s war crimes,” wrote Twitter user Seth Abramson.
