Tribute to paratroopers and crew team, who were killed in IL-76 downing by Russian terrorists a year ago, has been paid by residents of the Dnipropetrovsk region.

The tribute in the military unit #A1126 has been attended by authorities, clergy, and relatives of those killed in the tragedy, Censor.NET reports citing the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Administration press service.

One of attendees, Viktor Pashchenko, lost his friend in the tragedy. He says it was not his only acquaintance killed in the anti-terrorist operation, but it was the hardest loss.

"This was probably exactly the day, a year ago, when we realized the war was real. For there had been no such casualties before. For the first time it became clear how serious it was. Before that, it seemed that this all would end as a conflict with little casualties, not a large-scale tragedy," he stressed.
