Ukrainian General refused to take responsibility for the downed aircraft of the Russian Federation.
In early March 2014, Russian aircraft invaded the Crimea, which gave the command to shoot down, but that did not happen, and allowed the invaders to land troops on the Peninsula. About it told the Ukrainian truth chief of the General staff Victor Muzhenko.
According to him, March 2, 2014 Russia sent to Crimea 8-9 transport aircraft Il-76 and up to 12 helicopters.
“I contacted Colonel-General bajdak, said that can not find a chief of staff or Minister of defence – they were at the meeting. “We see the planes, they go at extremely low altitudes, and helicopters … what to do?”. I say “Proposal from the Russian Federation was? Was not. The violation of the airspace is? Beating down”. He says: “Who will command?”. I said, “I, Lieutenant-General Muzhenko, I give you the command to shoot down aircraft”. He says: “You have no right” (Muzhenko do not have the rights according to their authority – ed.). I ask: “Who has the right?”. He says: “the Minister, the chief of the General staff”. I ask again: “And you?” (It also has such a right, such powers). He says: “I am.” I said, “make decisions”. He replied: “I wouldn’t take,” – said Muzhenko.
