Defense Ministry of Belarus said that a Russian-built YAK-130 trainer jet crashed near the western city of Baranovichi Wednesday.

An unspecified technical problem was observed soon after taking off for a training mission from the airbase. The two pilots tried to take it away from residential areas before ejecting. They eventually bailed out but died, the ministry said.

The ministry said there were no casualties or damage on the ground. A military panel headed to the area to conduct a probe.
