This jagged metal tail and charred debris --- the aftermath of a Ukrainian military transport plane shot down by Pro-Russian separatists. There were no survivors. This shirt -- one of few personal effects left from the 49 Ukrainian servicemembers on board. It was targeted as it approached the runway at the Luhansk airport, near the Russian border. It's the largest number of casualties suffered in a single incident by government forces after they launched an operation to stop the rebellion in the east. Surveillance video captured the moment the jet was hit, followed by a fiery explosion. Ukrainian President Poroshenko has promised an "adequate" response.
