KIEV (Reuters) - A Ukrainian military aircraft was hit by gunfire on Tuesday while on a reconnaissance flight over the eastern city of Slaviansk, which is in the hands of armed pro-Russian separatists, the Defence Ministry said.
Several bullets struck the Antonov An-30 turboprop spotter plane but it was able to land safely, the ministry said in a statement.
