This was reported in the Kremlin.

“The details of the terrorist attack carried out by the Kyiv regime on January 24 on a Russian Il-76 aircraft with Ukrainian prisoners of war on board were discussed,” the statement said.

Putin emphasized Russia's interest in conducting an international investigation into the crime.

On January 24, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the Ukrainian Armed Forces hit a Russian Il-76 aircraft with captured Ukrainian military personnel over the Belgorod region using an anti-aircraft missile system.

The Russian Investigative Committee reported that, judging by the seized fragments, the Ukrainian Armed Forces used a MIM-104A guided missile from the Patriot air defense system to hit the aircraft.
