Russia’s defense ministry said on Saturday its forces shot down a Ukrainian military transport plane carrying weapons and munitions near the Black Sea port of Odesa.
The ministry said Russian missiles also struck an artillery training center in Ukraine’s Sumy region where foreign instructors worked. Another strike destroyed a “foreign mercenaries’” outpost in the Odesa region, it said.
Reuters could not independently verify the claims.
