The pilot ejected successfully, local officials said in a statement on social media.

The impact of his fall into the ocean reportedly broke both of his legs.

Unverified videos shared on social media appeared to show a parachute descending over the sea near a beach, and a large splash in the water.

Yeysk lies across the Sea of Azov from the Russian-controlled part of Ukraine’s Donetsk region.

The officials from Russia’s Krasnodar region said the pilot had been rescued from the water.
