Russian invaders destroyed the flagman of Ukrainian aviation – the legendary Antonov-225 “Dream”. It was the world’s largest cargo plane which was burnt in a Russian attack on Hostomel airport near Kyiv, Ukrainian state arms manufacture Ukroboronprom said on Sunday.
“Its restoration will cost more than $3 billion and will take a long time. Ukraine will put all its efforts to make these work paid by the state-agresor,” stated Ukroboronprom
“Russia destroyed our “Dream”, but the dream of free from occupant Ukraine is impossible to destroy. We will fight for our land and our home to a victorious end. And after the victory, we will definitely, hear, we will definitely finish our new “Dream”, which has been waiting for it for years in a safe place. Everything will be Ukraine! “, – said the CEO of the Ukroboronprom DK Yuri Gusev.
At the time of the invasion of AN-225 “Driya” was under repair at the Gostomel airport, so it did not have time to fly out of Ukraine.
