In Ukraine, a military transport plane with Air Force officers crashed, killing 25 people on board. The captain said the engine had broken down before the crash.
Antonov 26, an air force transport plane on a training flight in Kharkiv province in eastern Ukraine, crashed about two kilometers from a military airport where it was scheduled to land and went up in flames.
Local media said prosecutors said 25 of the 27 people on board, including air force officers, were killed and two others were seriously injured.
The cause is not known, but the captain said that the left engine had broken down by radio, so the Ukrainian government has set up an investigation committee to investigate the situation in detail.
