Military aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was shot down in the Luhansk oblast


Military transport plane An-26 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was shot down, reported presidential press service.

Defence Minister Valeriy Heletey reported to the president of Ukraine that the crew of An-26, which carried out missions to support active phase of the ATO and was shot down, established contact with the General Staff.

The plane flew at the attitude of 6,500 m. That’s why it is impossible that it was shot down by a man-portable air-defense system.

Therefore, the plane was shot by another more powerful missile launcher, according to Heletey. The shot was probably made from the Russian territory, emphasized the minister in his report.
