21 Confirmed Death from an Airplane Crash Close to Kharkiv


The Ministry of the Interior stated that at least 22 people, such as military cadets, were

killed and two others were severely hurt on Friday when a Ukrainian air force plane crashed

near Kharkiv in the east of the country.

“Twenty-two people died,” Deputy Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko told AFP, adding

that “the search for two other people is continuing”.

He revealed that a total of 28 passengers were transported by the transport plane when it

crashed, including 21 military students and seven crew.

“It’s a shock,” he added. “At the moment it’s impossible to establish the cause” of the crash.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that on Saturday he would take flight to the place.
