A helicopter crash in the suburbs of Kyiv has killed 14 people, including one child and Ukraine’s interior affairs minister – the country’s highest-profile casualty since the war began.

Ukraine has launched an investigation into the cause of the crash, but it could take weeks. The BBC has been piecing together what we know and what we don’t know in the immediate aftermath of the disaster.

What happened at the crash site?

BBC Ukraine correspondent James Waterhouse has been reporting from the crash site at Brovary, a suburb on the eastern edge of Kyiv.

At the site, near to a kindergarten, he saw wreckage of the aircraft – a door panel and one of the rotors – along with three bodies covered in foil blankets.
