An eyewitness, who was driving along the road towards Chuhuiv, told Reuters he saw a man in flames running from the plane after it crashed. "Another vehicle stopped behind us", said Yaroslav, who gave only his first name.

In 2002, a Su-27 fell into the crowd at an airshow in Lviv in western Ukraine killing 77 people and injuring 165 others.

An An-26 aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine crashed near the military airport in the northeastern area of Chuguiv before bursting into flames. "At the moment it's impossible to establish the cause of the crash".

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he would visit the site on Saturday and a commission was being created to investigate the circumstances that caused the mishap.

It has been revealed that the conflict between Russia-backed separatists and the Ukrainian government is continuing in Ukraine.
