    DAVYDO-MYKILSKE, Ukraine: Ukrainian forces were hunting for the crew of a downed military plane that Kiev said was “likely” shot down from Russia, as Washington accused Moscow of supplying military hardware to the rebels. “Crew members from an AN-26 plane . . . that was shot down have established contact with the general staff,” said a statement on the Ukrainian presidency website, without giving further details on the whereabouts of the eight people on board. It said the transport aircraft had been flying too high to be hit by portable missile systems used by the rebels, meaning the shots had “likely [come]from the territory of the Russian Federation.”
