The Command of Ukraine's Air Force has released the route of air traffic at the Chuhiuv airfield - several minutes before the crash of An-26 military aircraft near Kharkiv. The video is published on the Facebook page of the Air Force Command.

The footage shows the route of traffic of An-26SH, which crashed next to Chuhuiv airfield, and AN-26B, which successfully landed on the airfield briefly before that.

"We insist: this scheme cannot be used as evidence [in court], but it will become useful for loud experts", reads the message.

Earlier, the Air Force Command denied and called the statement of Kharkiv Governor Oleksiy Kucher a lie. Previously, Kucher said that the landing of the AN-26 aircraft was delayed because of another plane, on board which was the son of Serhiy Drozdov, Ukraine's Air Force Commander. This became known from a comment on the Facebook page of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"In a live broadcast, Mr. Kucher shamefully turned to personalities and rebuked the Commander of the Air Force, allegedly the plane on which his (Serhiy Drozdov's) son was, was given priority in landing. He said this minute could affect the successful landing of An -26. Lie and manipulation! ", the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine wrote.

In addition, the command emphasized that the second plane, which Kucher said about, did not affect the An-26 crash.
