Press Secretary of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense Andrei Yusov said that Moscow did not show readiness to transfer to the Ukrainian side the bodies of prisoners of war who were allegedly on board the Il-76 plane that crashed in the Belgorod region.
In a commentary to Suspilna, the speaker of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Education and Science said that there is so far no confirmation of Russian reports that there were Ukrainian prisoners on board the Il-76, which crashed near Belgorod, NBN reports.
The intelligence representative noted that Moscow did not express its readiness to hand over the bodies of the dead defenders. Yusov assured that if the information about the presence of our military on board the occupiers’ plane is confirmed, Ukraine will do everything to take them away.
The department’s press secretary recalled that on the day of the Il-76 crash, the Russian side did not announce Belgorod is in a state of silence and has not announced its intention to use a military aircraft to transport prisoners. In addition, Moscow's reaction to the fall of the Il-76 was provocative.
Earlier, Yusov suggested that the occupiers could use Ukrainians as human shields to transport missiles for the S-300 air defense system by plane.
Let us recall that Budanov pointed out the lies in the words of Kremlin head Vladimir Putin regarding the crash of the Il-76.
