In the area Torez we just hit down An-26, it’s lying somewhere in the mine “Progress”.‘We warned you – do not fly in “our sky”. And here is the video confirmation of the “bird dropping”.‘Bird fell near the mine, the residential sector was not disturbed. Civilians are not injured.’
At the time, he apparently believed he had shot down an Antonov-26 military plane of the Ukrainian Air Force Plane. As soon as he must have realized the grave mistake he and his crew made, he deleted the tweet and video immediately.
Innocents lives lost due to someone’s mistake. This is really sad, our condolence to the friends and family of the deceased.
