A Sukhoi Su-24 fighter serving with the Russian Air Force crashed at 6.52 a.m. Moscow time today at the Khurba airfield near Komsomolsk-on-Amur in the Khabarovsk territory (Russian Far East).
This was disclosed here today by Alexander Drobyshevsky, chief of the Russian Air Force's press center.

Preliminary reports point to engine malfunctions, Drobyshevsky added.
