We’ve all seen the devastation going on overseas in Ukraine.

Your heart breaks for the people of Ukraine, as thousands and thousands of lives could be lost when it’s all said and done, along with millions displaced from their homes. Not to mention the uncertainty on just how far this war will go.

This week, there had been several unconfirmed reports of a Ukrainian MiG-29 Fulcrum pilot, who has taken matters into his own hands, taking down as many as six Russian planes.

The pilot has been dubbed the “Ghost of Kyiv,” taking down four Russian fighter jets (two Su-35 Flankers, one Su-27 Flanker, and one MiG-29 Fulcrum) along with two ground-attack aircraft called Su-25 Frogfoots.

The Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has announced that everybody in Ukraine “has the right to bear arms,” and they’re recruiting people to join the fight left and right in order to stop the Russian invasion.

In fact, Zelenskyy, and former star boxer and mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, have all decided to fight alongside the people of Ukraine as well.

With that being said, the former president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, has officially confirmed that the “Ghost of Kyiv” is real, via a tweet.

It translates:

“In the photo… the MiG-29 pilot. The same ‘Ghost of Kyiv.’ It terrifies enemies and pride Ukrainians.

He has 6 victories over Russian pilots! With such powerful defenders, Ukraine will definitely win!”

Talk about hero of the year so far.

His six plane takedowns makes him the first ace pilot in Europe since World War II.

Ukraine has reportedly downed seven Russian planes, along with six Russian helicopters, according to the New York Post.
