An Ilyushin 76 cargo plane of the Russian Air Force, among the largest military planes in the world, was recorded rapidly losing altitude and crashing by civilians in the Moscow region on Tuesday. Fire can be seen erupting from its engines on the right wing. According to reports from Russian media sources, the military plane crashed a few kilometers north of Moscow.

The Ilyushin 76 is a heavy cargo and military transport aircraft, among the largest in the world. It was designed and built during Soviet times and is used for rapid transportation of extremely heavy military tools. It is not yet clear how the plane was damaged or whether it was a malfunction, accident, or a deliberate attack on the part of Ukraine or another party.

Over the past few months, Ukraine has carried out a series of operations in which they shot down Russian planes using sophisticated air defense systems and missiles provided by the West. The Zelenskyy regime has even carried out strikes deep within Russian territory resulting in damage to infrastructure and military equipment in the Moscow region.
