Unknown hijacked a Ukrainian plane that flew to Kabul to evacuate Ukrainian citizens. About this “Public Radio” told Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Yevgeniy Yenin.
“Last Sunday, our plane was seized by other people. On Tuesday, our plane was actually stolen – it flew to Iran with an unknown group of passengers on board instead of taking out the Ukrainians, ”Yenin said.
The official added that the people who hijacked the aircraft were armed. According to Yenin, the next three attempts to evacuate the Ukrainians were also unsuccessful, as passengers were unable to get to the airport, where thousands of people were awaiting evacuation.
Previously became knownthat the militants of the terrorist movement “Taliban” took possession of several planes, helicopters and anti-tank missiles of the United States, which were left after the start of the withdrawal of the American military from Afghanistan.
According to the interlocutors of the Al-Arabiya TV channel, the militants have not yet decided what to do with this equipment. As the TV channel notes, it will be difficult for the Taliban to use it, since there are no professional pilots in the Taliban. They also have nowhere to service the planes and helicopters that have fallen into their hands.
