IL76D RA-76822

Disappeared from radar descending through 750ft north of Moscow. Seems a somewhat murky operation.

Seem confusion as to whether it crashed or whether the whole thing is fake. No word on a crash in the media. Is there a military airfield in the area?

Seems to be on a shuttle between Yerevan and Moscow but missed the descent and approach.

Il-76TD RA-76822 #152C16 from 🇷🇺 Ramenskoye to 🇦🇲 Yerevan being reported by @RadarBoxCom as "Suckling Airways," which is defunct. However, the transport is sourced here as operated by Sky Gates Int'l which ceased ops in Russia after the Ukraine invasion began. 🤔

"Disappeared from radar" and "disappeared from crowd-sourced ADS-B" aren't the same thing at all.

ADSB Exch shows similar descent to <1000' and speed about 330kts. Certainly no airfields in the vicinity that I could see. Be interesting to find out what,.if anything, happened.
