 Crew of the Ukrainian Aircraft that Was Shot down from Russian Territory Established Contact with the General Staff - Defense Minister

Minister of Defense Valeriy Heletey reported to President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko that crew members of An-26 that had been fulfilling the task within the active phase of the ATO had established contact with the General Staff.

Censor.NET reports about it, citing the press service of the Head of State.

Also, given the fact that the plane was going at a height of 6500 m, its damaging by MANPADS was impossible. Thus, the plane was downed by another, more powerful missile weapon that probably was used from the territory of the Russian Federation.

Currently, search and rescue mission is being conducted to deliver the crew of the plane to the territory controlled by Ukrainian servicemen.
