Russia has demanded the downing of a Western arms plane. The information was reported live on BBC Online on Sunday.
According to Moscow, the Western military aircraft carrying the aircraft belonged to Ukraine. The plane was shot down by Russia’s air defense unit.
Moscow claims that the Ukrainian military aircraft was carrying shipments of weapons sent by Western countries.
Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov was quoted by Russia’s state news agency Tass as saying that the attack took place outside the city of Odessa in southwestern Ukraine.
The BBC has not been able to independently verify Russia’s claim.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
In the context of Russian aggression, Western countries are coming to Ukraine with huge arms aid.
Kiev has repeatedly called on the international community to provide more weapons to Ukraine. At the same time, Ukraine is calling for tougher sanctions against Russia.
General Igor Konashenkov also claimed that in the last 24 hours, Russian aircraft units had hit dozens of military targets in Ukraine.
Russia has stepped up its attacks on Ukraine following the sinking of the Black Sea warship Moscow.
Igor Konashenkov said the Russian air force had destroyed 16 Ukrainian military installations overnight with high-powered missile strikes.
At a news conference, Igor Konashenkov said that among the 17 military installations attacked were 11 archives of Ukrainian military vehicles in the village of Povastansko in the Odessa region.
Last Thursday, the Russian warship Moscow sank in the Black Sea. This Soviet-era warship is a symbol of the bravery of Russian forces.
Russia says the ship caught fire. Later, when it was pulled towards the shore, it fell into the storm and sank. However, Ukrainian authorities say they fired missiles at the ship.
