Four Ministers Die In Ukraine Helicopter Crash

Barely a month ago, four ministry heads in Ukraine died in a helicopter crash, Naija News recalls.

It was gathered that the Ukrainian Interior Minister, Denis Monastyrsky, and three other ministers were in the tragic incident which occurred beside a kindergarten in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital.

At least 16 people reportedly died in the crash, nine of whom were aboard the helicopter when it went down.

Giving an update on the accident, the head of Kyiv’s regional military administration, Oleksiy Kuleba, said the tragedy in Brovary had left 29 injured and killed 18.

He noted that an inferno started after the helicopter crashed. Authorities, however, are yet to understand what might have caused the accident.

At the time of the tragedy, children and staff were in kindergarten. At the moment, everyone has been evacuated.

Meanwhile, Ukraine police chief, Ihor Klymenko, told reporters that at least nine victims were aboard the helicopter, which belonged to Ukraine’s state emergency service.
