Cadets among 22 Dead in Ukraine Military Plane Crash

At least 25 people died in a crash of Antonov An-26 aircraft in northeastern Ukraine.

"The search for two more people continues", the services said in a statement.

The press service said that a state commission has been set up to find out the circumstances and causes to this catastrophe. It was carrying cadets from Kharkiv Air Force University and was on a training flight.

AFP reports that the plane caught fire after the crash and was extinguished an hour later.

"We send our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of the cadets, officers, and crew killed and injured in the An-26 plane crash", the USA embassy in Ukraine said on Facebook.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declared Saturday to be a day of mourning for the crash victims and ordered that flights of An-26 planes be halted pending the outcome of the investigation into the cause of the crash.

The town of Chuhuiv is around 30 kilometres southeast of Kharkiv and 100 kilometres west of the front line with the pro-Russian separatists. Two cadets managed to jump out of the plane, but they sustained injuries to about 90% of body surface, Kharkov Region Governor Alexei Kucher said.

He extended his condolences to the "friendly Ukrainian people".

A pilot was killed in December 2018 after his Su-27 fighter crashed during landing in the Zhytomyr region.

He specified that among the crew and cadets there were people from 11 regions of Ukraine. Two others were critically injured.

The Ukrainian military also confirmed the crash on Facebook. However, there is no suggestion that the crash is linked to the conflict in eastern Ukraine. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
