The Senator in his microblog on Twitter reminded the coalition, which explained their actions by “security” and “defense” that the action takes place in Syria, and not on American soil.
“Shooting down Syrian military aircraft su-22, the United States carried out a new act of war St. Syria. What “defense”? Raqqa is the Syrian city, not American,” wrote Pushkov.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that forces of anti-terrorist coalition headed by the USA in the area of the Syrian city Tabka the plane was shot down by Syrian government forces, explaining their actions by the need to maintain “collective security”.
Blow to Syrian su-22 carrying out a routine bombs on rebel positions, was dealt the American fighter F/A-18E Super Hornet. Currently, the fate of the pilot of the downed aircraft is not known.
“The SAR government troops attacked a town South of Tabka. Syrian su-22 was shot down by American F/A-18E Super Hornet after they dropped bombs on the position of the SDS… the Coalition tried to prevent the incident before contacting the bump on the plane with Russia on a special channel. We tried to reduce the tension of the situation and to stop the fire” – quotes Reuters the message command of the United States.
