Ukraine Military Shoots Down Russian Transport Plane 20km from Kyiv

This is a developing story and updates will follow:

Ukrainian forces claim to have shot down a Russian Il-76 Candid airlifter flying near the country’s capital Kyiv tonight, although there is no independent confirmation of this so far. Il-76s are generally used for heavy transport and paratrooper operations, though there are derivatives of the design that also serve as aerial refueling tankers and early warning aircraft. This comes as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is now entering its third day. 

General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: — “Our Air Defense Forces shot down 1L-76 with an enemy landing near Vasilkov (20 km South from Kyiv/Kiev) This is revenge for Luhansk 2014! Death to the Enemies !”
