Pilot error caused Ukrainian helicopter’s crash

Pilot error caused Ukrainian helicopter’s crash

Kiev, Jan 24 (Prensa Latina) A pilot error due to the dense fog caused the helicopter accident in Brovary (Kiev region), where the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine was killed, the Strana.ua website reported on Tuesday.

The media outlet assured that the causes of the disaster in which the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Denis Monastirski, died were included in the preliminary report by experts.

According to the sources, the helicopter was flying at a very low altitude in poor visibility conditions, so the pilot failed to spot a tall building in time, and in the evasive maneuver he failed to prevent a collision with a kindergarten.

The aircraft of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, which was flying to the Kharkov region and had the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on board, crashed in the morning of January 18 into a kindergarten in Brovary.

As a result of the crash, 14 people, including a minor, were killed, and 25 persons, including 11 children, were injured.

Ukrainian authorities have not yet released the official report on the causes of the accident.
