Not confirmed info but sounds a truth. Paratroopers from Dnepropetrovsk in Lugansk airport rised a Russian flag and asked Self-Defense for the "evacuation corridor". Locals said it was a night fight between paratroopers from Dnepropetrovsk and paratroopers from Lvov (western Ukraine) at the Lugansk airport's airfield..
Who shot down Il-76?

Is it possible that the "rotation troops" on the iL76 [including the load of Foreign mercenaries] were being flown in to replace the rebellious Dnepropetrovsk paras. Perhaps the rebellious paras took matters into their own hands and downed the aircraft? After all, they would have been listening in on the radio channels.
So then, what is the current situation at the airport?

Here is a report I managed to find, sorry about the broken English.
However, it will be clear that the two major issues of the day – Mariupol and Lugansk Airport, have not been very well recorded by MSM and the Junta PR machine.
It would seem that the city is almost evenly split pro Junta and Prof republic. This is understandable as it was the major Ukrainian port for the Black Sea – rather like Russia had at Crimea. There would be a preponderance of Uki Junta supporters there.
It would also appear as though many of those who were Uki have defected or wanted to defect and the Junta has sent in Right Serktor to “weed-out” the defectors and to establish Junta rule.
These Right Sektor are now under attack from guerrilla type operations. Mariupol will fester away until it is blocked of support from the West.
Lughansk Air Port.
There appears to have been a major rebellion there with one of the two formulations of paras at the air port attacking the Junta supporting paras. Those deserting paras and their equipment, look destined to be part of the Novorussiya forces. The defeated paras will either be mopped up, surrender or run away. But their equipment will also fall to the Republic forces.
The losses in the iL 76 downing are much higher than released as it appears only “official” Uki Junta forces have been registered as lost. EU mercenaries and a couple of US advisors were in the losses – apparently the Novorussiya forces are repatriating the US bodies. [Why??].
Anyway, have a read of this report.
Regarding Mariupol, as mentioned earlier, is not so simple. Despite the bravura communiques junta militia still there and in fact transferred to the tactics of urban guerrilla warfare. Given that the 500 000 inhabitants of Mariupol on both sides will not be typed and 1,500 people with arms full control on both sides of Mariupol looks unlikely, so everything seems to be reduced to sporadic clashes low intensity.
Fascist junta squad was ambushed on Posmostu in Mariupol. Number of killed and wounded is not known.
UPD: According to specified data http://ria.ru/world/20140614/1011967410.h TML - 3 killed, 4 wounded in the junta. So sooner Mariupol deducted.
UPD2: The link http://vk.com/feed?w=wall-66621324_48589 7 more details. Plus another interesting information in Lugansk - there from the night continues shelling the city and suburbs of the village Happiness. Moreover as Komsomolskaya Pravda correspondent:
As a result of the collapse of the downed militias IL-76 in Lugansk 49 people were killed. This is stated in the press service of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
"About 1 hour and 10 minutes June 14, 2014 during the approach to land at the airport Lugansk shot of anti-aircraft missile complex was hit by a military transport aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine IL-76. on board the aircraft, except 9 crew members were 40 soldiers. They all died, "- said in a statement.
Prosecutor's Office of the Southern region of Ukraine for law enforcement in the military field on this fact initiated pre-trial investigation of criminal offenses under Part 3. 258 of the Criminal Code (terrorist act that led to the loss of life and significant property zinc
Downed IL-76 in the area of the Lugansk airport. Locked In Lugansk airport Airborne soldiers are from Dnepropetrovsk and Lvov. morning, immediately after the fall of IL-76 in the Lugansk airport erupted fight between Dnepropetrovsk and Lvov paratroopers. Won seems to Dnepropetrovsk. Prior to this, they raised over fuel depot flag of Russia. That's why the fight began. Now they came out of the airport and with the Russian flag moving in the direction of the city Anthracite. militia now trying to establish contact with them. In Lugansk, an air-raid alarm. PS. According to unconfirmed reports from the same Vasegova downed in IL-76, was not the 40 Marines and more than 100. Apparently, their death and served as a trigger to rebellion in part Airborne.
zinc UPD: Details destruction IL-76: "Three went by the board. first landed. downed second terrorists. On board were 49 people: 9 person crew from Melitopol transport team, 40 people from the 25th brigade. 1,2,3 - battalions, rocket men, scouts, gunners, sappers. All of the Dnepropetrovsk region. As reservists and contractors. Accurate lists are specified, and will in the near future. Now drop zone side, we are working to collect the remains. Was a third board, which managed to get out of fire and return. " UPD: Tantrum Filatova on Facebook: Of the 49 people killed: 9 - crew members of Zaporozhye region. Two paratroopers from Donetsk, one: Kherson, Odessa, Kharkov, Lugansk, Kirovograd. remaining 32 people from our area: Dnepr - 10 people, Krivoy Rog-6, Pavlograd-2-2 Dniprodzerzhyns'k, Nikopol-2. remaining boys from rural areas of Dnipropetrovsk. 's such you Russian scum, "New Russia "was published in the same plane. Vru. were missing. Another boy was from the city. NB! Error Filatova that this is not the New Russia, and punishers, which threw this very tame Novorossia and who met their end under Lugansk. Others wish to fight Donbas interesting - the end times can be sudden and swift. Overall, we got a decent sort of a revenge for the defeat of Mariupol and Donetsk airport. Rising shelling apparently in revenge for a loss in the airport. should also be noted that over the past days loss of dozens of people in one or both parties have ceased to be something special, turned into a bloody routine.

Civil wars are ugly. I wonder how long before mustard gas is used on somebody?
The funny thing about civil wars is that they usually end before everybody is dead. People eventually get tired of killing and dying and learn how to make things work and they ALWAYS turn against outside agitator nations.

When the smoke cleared the Axis won because they were closer and more easily able to supply their guys and Franco, who owed his ass to the Axis, sat out WW2 and Spain merely became a launching point for Japanese spies.
