Remnants of Antonov An-225 Mriya to be cleared

The mighty Antonov An-225 Mriya. The largest aircraft in the world. Scrapped by the Russians in their attempt to take over Ukraine. It is only an aeroplane, you may think, but this beast of an aircraft has slowly but surely become a symbol for Ukraine as well.

The Russians got hold of Hostomel Airport and demolished the biggest aeroplane in the world. Ukraine fought back and regained control of their airport, but there was not much left of the An-225.

Now, the remains of the plane are being cleaned up. The aim is to reuse certain parts if the Mriya is ever rebuilt. This will also be for the symbolic value.
