Seems like a waste of a missile but cool footage.

Moscow denies the accusation, which was reported by the Reuters news agency. Abkhazian authorities say they shot down the plane, which was flying over the Gali Disctrict on Sunday. Up until now Georgia has denied involvement, claiming they hadn’t sent a plane to the area. Abkhazia says the plane violated its airspace, although Georgia regards the whole region as its sovereign territory. In a phone interview with RT, Abkhazia’s presidential envoy to the area, Ruslan Kishmariya, said it was not the first time spy planes have violated the republic's air space. “Recently there was a case when a Georgian air vehicle was shot down. However, reconnaissance flights didn't stop after that,” Kishmariya said. The incident comes amidst Georgian claims that the Abkhazian authorities have raised tension by sending additional armed forces to the Gali district. Counter claims from the Abkhazian side say Georgia is increasing its military presence around the contested Kodori Gorge.
