The world’s largest aircraft was destroyed during a Russian invasion of Ukraine. The aircraft named “Mriya” or “dream” was parked at an airfield near Kyiv when it was attacked by Russian Occupants. Ukraine’s authorities claim that they do plan on rebuilding the plane.

“Russia may have destroyed our ‘Mriya’ , but they will never be able to destroy our dream of a strong, free and democratic European state. We shall prevail!” wrote Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Twitter.

Ukrainian state defense company “Ukroboronprom”, which manages Antonov, on Sunday issued a statement saying the aircraft had been destroyed but would be rebuilt at Russia’s expense, a cost it put at $3 billion. “The restoration is estimated to take over 3 billion USD and over five years,” the statement said. “Our task is to ensure that these costs are covered by the Russian Federation, which has caused intentional damage to Ukraine’s aviation and the air cargo sector. The tensions in Ukraine have upscaled to a full on war. Vladmir Putin has declared war on Ukraine.
