Russia’s Wagner mercenary group reportedly shot down military transport aircraft in the Voronezh region.
A Russian Air Force An-26 and several helicopters were shot down allegedly by Wagner Special Forces.
Some sources reported that it was a Russian Ilyushin 22 aircraft.
Russia accused mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin of armed mutiny on Friday after he alleged, without providing evidence, that the military leadership had killed a huge number of his fighters in an air strike and vowed to punish them.
