Volodymyr Bukhalsky, Ukrainian Air Force pilot has been buried in Melitopol, Zaporizhya region, southeastern Ukraine. The serviceman was killed in the recent attack on two Ukrainian planes in Libya.
Bukhalsky served at a private air company. The United Arab Emirates hired the aircraft so that it would move the cargo from Turkey to Libya. July 28, the plane piloted by Bukhalsky was shot down over the airfield. In 2011, the airman was the captain of the crew that evacuated Ukrainian captives from Libya. He left his wife and two children behind.
It is mentioned that the MI-14 and Ka-27 helicopters, as well as airplanes An-26, participated in the training.
"During the week drills the personnel developed air force training, worked on the search elements, emergency care to victims and evacuation," the message reads.
