A Tu-134 plane, which could earlier belong to former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, has been found in Belarus, the Aviation of Ukraine online publication has reported.
According to the publication, a private Ukrainian company did not pay
for the maintenance of the aircraft, so it currently remains at Minsk
Aircraft Repair Plant.
The Belarus Partisan publication cited the plant’s director general,
Evgeni Vajtsekhovich, who said that the plant received the plane for
maintenance from a private Ukrainian company, which signed a contract
with the plant. Later, the company went bankrupt, and the aircraft
remained at the plant.
“We are preparing a respective appeal,” he said.
Earlier reports in Belarusian media said that Tymoshenko’s plane had
been found at Minsk Aircraft Repair Plant. However, Vajtsekhovich did
not confirm that the aircraft belonged to Ukraine’s former prime
“Perhaps, this plane was earlier used by the state’s top leaders, but
it’s currently impossible to say that it belonged to the well-known
politician,” he said.
