Quote:A kraine military transport plane was shot down by pro-Russia rebels near the industrial city of Luhansk late Friday, killing 49 servicemen in the most tragic incident yet in over two months of fighting in southeastern Ukraine, officials said.

“On the night of June 13-14, firing from an anti-aircraft gun and a large-caliber machine gun, terrorists cynically and treacherously shot down a Ukraine armed forces transport plane IL-76 which was bringing personnel for rotation,” said a statement posted on the Defense Ministry's official website Saturday.

“The plane fell in a farm field near the airport, exploded and burned,” said Vladislav Seleznev, spokesman for the anti-terrorist operation conducted jointly by the Interior and Defense ministries and the Security Service. “There were 40 servicemen and nine crew members on board.”
