It was recently reported by The New York Post that there have been unconfirmed reports of an ace Ukrainian fighter pilot have gone viral, with social media users dubbing the fighter the “Ghost of Kyiv.”

Supposedly downing as many as six Russian planes in the first day of combat, the Ghost of Kyiv — and their MiG-29 Fulcrum — quickly became a folk hero in a war breathlessly watched online.

According to one widely circulated post, the Ghost of Kyiv is believed to have shot down four Russian fighter jets — two Su-35 Flankers, one Su-27 Flanker and one MiG-29 Fulcrum — as well as two ground-attack aircraft, so-called Su-25 Frogfoots.

The reports remain unconfirmed by Ukrainian officials — and the war remains rife with misinformation and propaganda.

It was, however, further reported that the evocative name is trending on Twitter and other social media sites, and refers to a Ukrainian MIG-29 pilot who allegedly shot down six Russian jets in the first day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Accompanying many of the Ghost of Kyiv posts is footage of what appears to be a MIG-29 – known under NATO’s naming scheme as a Fulcrum – though most posts have exactly the same short clip – the plane flying over concrete tower blocks of housing with grey skies behind.

Under generally recognized air warfare naming conventions any pilot who manages five ‘kills’ (destroying or downing an enemy plane) is recognized as an ‘Ace’. 

With six kills in one day, the Ghost of Kyiv would therefore be an Ace after just one day of combat. (There has always been something rather terrifying of chalking up kills in this manner, as if it were just sport, merely scoring goals against an opposition, rather than the truth of the opposing pilot being burnt to death in an airborne fireball, or perishing as their stricken craft smashes into the ground).
