It is a great series of photos apart from one. The ejection didn't take place in the air. They filmed the ejection on the ground using an Su-27UB painted up to look like the Su-35 number 801. Note the giveaway of the slanted fin tops? The Su-35 flew without the canopy and had the rocket ejection seat blast marked painted on the fuselage.

One of the most intriguing themes that is consistent within this topic is the issue of sonic booms over populated areas with the military rejecting ownership. Unlike seeing "something in the sky", a sonic boom is inherently unmistakable - you can't mix that up with a conventional explanation. What it goes to show is that there was an object in the sky going at rapid speeds, an object not belonging to the military. That is an amazing admission if anything.
