What we know about a Russian jetliner with the name ‘MOSCOW’ in it that crashed near the Ukrainian city of Krasnodon
Russia’s Investigative Committee has confirmed the identity of a Russian plane that crashed on the outskirts of the Russian city of Odessa with the Russian-language names of Moscow and Rostov.
The Investigative Committee said on Friday the crash occurred on April 13 near the village of Khorovka, near the town of Rostov, near Ukraine’s border with Belarus.
The Investigative Committee also said the plane was carrying a Russian crew, which it did not identify.
The aircraft that crashed has been identified as the Ilyushin IL-76, a Soviet-era aircraft that was part of a fleet of more than 1,300 aircraft produced in the Soviet Union, according to the Investigative Committee.
The investigation into the crash was led by Deputy Director General Yuri Chaika, the committee’s head of investigations, and Deputy Chief Prosecutor Anatoly Malyshev.
According to the committee, the aircraft was flying from the city of Novosibirsk, in Russia’s Far East, to the city’s airport at Khorova.
The investigators believe the crew did not know their destination and the plane did not land.
The investigators also believe the plane’s crew, including the pilot, had taken off before the crash, according the Investigative Court.
The plane’s passenger list did not list any passengers.
The crash is not the first of its kind to occur in Ukraine, where Ukrainian officials have warned that Moscow is actively trying to destabilize Ukraine and undermine the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
On Friday, Ukraine’s acting Prime Minister, Volodymyr Groysman, said that Moscow’s attempt to influence Ukraine is a serious threat to the security of the country.
Ukraine’s security services have warned the country that the Russian air force is training in eastern Ukraine, the Associated Press reported.
Ukraine has also been dealing with a wave of Russian aggression and Russian propaganda in the country, which has fueled tensions between the two nations.
