On 7 January 2023, a Ukrainian Air Force MiG-29 fighter jet was shot down by a Ukrainian Army 9K33 Osa mobile surface-to-air missile system in a friendly fire incident, in the vicinity of the village of Ostrivske, Pokrovsk Raion, Donetsk Oblast. The crash occurred in a field next to Youthful road towards the Russian controlled city of Donetsk, along the Vovcha River. The aircraft was armed with an American origin AGM-88 HARM anti-radiation missile, and sported a livery similar in appearance with the former "Ukrainian Falcons" aerobatic team. The pilot was reportedly killed. Footage of the downed aircraft was reportedly filmed by a Russian reconnaissance UAV shortly after the crash, evidenced by the Soviet origin Pulkovo 1942 coordinate notation.
