For unknown reasons, the aircraft crashed near the village of Butovsk, Bryansk region. A pilot (a citizen of Ukraine) who tried to escape to Ukrainian territory was detained border patrol.”

Pro-Russian media outlets claimed the man was attempting to drop homemade explosives on the Druzhba pipeline.
