A Motor Sich Antonov AN-140, registration UR-14005 performing flight M9-318 from Minsk National (Belarus) to Zaporozhye (Ukraine), was enroute at FL190 about 80nm northnorthwest of Kiev Zhulyani (Ukraine) when the right hand engine (TV3) failed prompting the crew to shut the engine down and divert to Kiev's Zhulyani Airport for a safe landing on runway 08 about 35 minutes after leaving FL190.

A replacement Yakovlev Yak-40 registration UR-88310 reached Zaporozhye with a delay of about 3 hours.

On May 25th 2021 Ukraine's NBAAI reported in their monthly bulletin the occurrence is being investigated by the NBAAI. The aircraft was at FL170 when the crew reported problems with the right hand engine and diverted to Zhulyani Airport for a safe landing on runway 08.

On Sep 20th 2021 the NBAAI reported the crew noticed a drop in the engine gas temperature and reducing propeller speed, feathered the propeller, shut the engine down, declared emergency and decided to divert to Zhulyani Airport. Maintenance established moisture and corrosion in an electric wire connector had caused increased resistance, which resulted in decreased voltage on a fuel pump regulator and eventually its shutdown.
