Avião militar russo cai perto da fronteira da Ucrânia

January 24, 2024 - O Ministério da Defesa russo acusou a Ucrânia de abater um avião militar, matando as 74 pessoas, incluindo 65 prisioneiros de guerra
ucranianos. Ucrânia diz que transportava mísseis S-300.

Ukrainian officials did not immediately confirm or deny Russia’s claims about the crash in Russia’s Belgorod border region, although they said they were looking into them.

In addition to the 65 POWs, the Il-76 transport carried a crew of six and three other passengers, the Russian military said. According to the statement, Russian radar registered the launch of two missiles from Ukraine’s Kharkiv region that borders the Belgorod region. The ministry did not provide evidence for its claim.

The Russian military said the POWs were being flown to the region for a prisoner swap when the plane was downed at 11:15 a.m. local time (0815 GMT), according to AP.
