Military helicopter crashes in Ukraine, crew died | Reuters

KIEV A small Ukrainian military helicopter crashed in the east of the country on Sunday, killing all crew members, Ukraine's defence ministry said.

The aircraft, a Soviet-designed Mi-2, crashed near Kramatorsk, the headquarter of Ukrainian government forces that oppose pro-Russian separatists, the ministry said.

The ministry did not indicate the number of casualties and said it is most likely that the Mi-2 had flown into a power line. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by David Goodman)
