By Maxim Karpenko – The United States, through its Europe-wide propaganda network, VOA – Voice of America has confirmed the death of their military pilot during a plane crash at the Clear Sky exercise near Vinnitsa, which occurred on October 15th.
The deceased was named as Lt. Col. Seth Nering, nicknamed “Jethro,” reports Voice of America.
It is reported that Seth Nering was a pilot from the 194th combat squadron of the California Air National Guard. Earlier, the press service of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported on the American citizenship of the second dead pilot, but then this record was erased.
The United States Air Force later vaguely reported that a citizen of the United States was a participant in the “incident”, but did not specify whether he was a pilot. Later it became known that the Ukrainian pilot Colonel Ivan Petrenko was in the cockpit of the crashed Su-27 military fighter.
The Americans used Ukrainian pilots as guinea pigs to study pilot psychology under likely adversarial conditions during the NATO Pure Sky exercise in the Vinnitsa region.
