A Russian aircraft that was carrying people seems to have crashed. It was carrying a total of thirty-nine people. It was a transport plane and seems to have crashed while trying to land in Syria.

The Russian plane was an Antonov An-26. It's a twin-engine aircraft and was developed by the Soviet Union.

It's said that the Russian President, Vladimir Putin has been briefed on the situation. Putin was briefed on it by Sergei Shoigu, who is the Defence Minister of Russia.

The aircraft was trying to land at Hmeimin air base in Syria when something went wrong. The plane is said to have come down around five-hundred meters short of the runway.

The crash is being investigated and Russia's Investigative Committee as supposedly launched a criminal case over the incident.

The ministry had ruled out the possibility of it being shot down and that some data suggests that it may have been a technical error that leads to this happening. Although Radio Free Europe, a rebel group that's against the leader of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, has claimed to have shot down the plane. The group is known as Jaish al-Islam.

If the plane was actually shot down, then it could be in retaliation to Russia providing support to the Assad government during the brutal civil war that has been going on for over six years.

The support that Russia has been giving the Assad government has not gone without protest in other countries. Some individuals feel that Russia is flexing its muscles in the Middle East. Others feel that statement is hypocritical if the individual is okay with their own government giving support in the Middle East indirectly.
