Helicopter Crash Kills Ukraine’s Interior Minister, 13 Others

Denis Monastyrsky, Ukraine’s interior minister, was killed in a helicopter crash in a residential area in eastern Kyiv early on Wednesday morning. According to the office of the presidency, the minister and five people from his office were traveling to “carry out work in one of the hot spots of our country where hostilities are ongoing.” But around 8 a.m., the helicopter crashed into a nursery school.

Casualties: At least 14 people died—all nine people aboard the helicopter plus five on the ground, including one child. A major fire broke out after the helicopter crashed, injuring a further 29 people, 15 of whom were children. Children were at the nursery at the time of the crash, according to the governor of the Kyiv region. Witnesses described a scene of fire and smoke, with charred bits of metal strewn across the ground and screams piercing the air.

The reality of war: The cause of the crash has not yet been established, but reports suggest ground fire was possible, and Ukrainian officials refuse to rule out sabotage. Russia has made no comment on the crash.

The Ukraine war is shattering the idea that our modern world is impervious to war. Over 11 months into this war, tragedies such as this have become common.

What is happening in Ukraine is a harbinger of what is coming to the rest of the world. And though many might doubt it, all-out nuclear war is on the horizon, hurtling closer every day. See how biblical prophecy foretells this in Gerald Flurry’s booklet Nuclear Armageddon Is ‘At the Door.’
