Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) said that it thwarted an attempt by Ukrainian intelligence to recruit a Russian pilot to hijack a Tu-22M3 supersonic strategic bomber jet.

In a statement on Monday, the FSB said Ukraine's special services promised the Russian pilot Italian citizenship and money as part of a deal that would see him "fly and land a missile carrier in Ukraine.".

Russia's Tu-22M3 jet, which has the NATO code name Backfire, is described by its designer Tupolev as a long-range supersonic missile carrier bomber that uses aerial bombs and guided missiles to destroy sea- and ground-based targets.

An interesting story, but given that it comes from the Russians, it is 99% likely to be sheer propaganda and 1% likely to be an exaggeration.

That’s very possible, but I am not going to speculate if it is propaganda it will exposed sooner or later.

I would have thought it serves Ukrainian propaganda better
