Russia' defense ministry clarified that the Mi-8 transport helicopter had been shot down in Idlib after delivering aid to Aleppo as it made its way back to Russia' main air base in Latakia.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has verified that all crew members on board dead in the attack after defense ministry’s information report.

Also Kremlin indicated that which group or who did this attack was unknown at that moment. In parallel with this statement, no group has claimed responsibility for shooting the helicopter down.
Islamic State fighters are not active in the area, but there are other Islamist rebel groups in this area backed by the United States and this situation can cause a major diplomatic incident that helicopter might been shot down by a U.S.-supplied weapon.

As to official declarations, this loss of life has been the biggest loss for Russian forces since they started operations in Syria and after this attack, loss for Russian forces in Syria came up to eight-teen.
