Ukraine Launches Investigation into Downed Russian Military Plane: Uncertainties Surrounding Kyiv’s Role and the Fate of Captured Soldiers

Amidst the recent tragedy involving the downing of a Russian military plane over Russia’s Belgorod region, Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) has initiated a criminal probe to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.

The aircraft, identified as an IL-76 Russian Air Force plane, was allegedly shot down on Wednesday near the Ukrainian border. The pressing question remains: were the captured Ukrainian soldiers aboard killed, and was Kyiv involved?

The SBU’s press service stated, “The security service of Ukraine has opened a criminal investigation into the downing of an IL-76 Russian Air Force plane in the Belgorod region.” The SBU is actively pursuing measures to elucidate the details surrounding the tragic event.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called for an international investigation into the matter, highlighting the urgency of uncovering the truth. Despite confirmation of a scheduled prisoner exchange at the border on the same day, Kyiv asserts that Moscow did not communicate the use of a plane for transporting prisoners of war.

As the SBU’s criminal probe delves into potential “violations of the laws and customs of war,” the central claim by Russia that Kyiv shot down the plane, resulting in the death of numerous Ukrainian soldiers, remains unconfirmed. The ambiguity surrounding Kyiv’s role and the fate of the captured soldiers adds complexity to an already distressing situation.
