Deadliest day for Ukraine in Kremlin-backed separatist war spurs outrage

June 14 marks the deadliest day of the undeclared war between Ukraine and pro-Russian separatists in the country’s eastern regions after Kremlin-backed insurgents shot down a Ukrainian military cargo plane carrying 49 servicemen. All were killed.

Most of them – 40 servicemen – were paratroopers of the 25th Dnipropetrovsk airborne brigade, while nine were from the Melitopil transport brigade and the plane’s crew. An investigation is under way by the general prosecutor into terrorism.
