The pilot had requested an emergency landing shortly after takeoff due to engine trouble, but ultimately crashed near the town of Kavala.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has confirmed that all eight victims are Ukrainian citizens.
So far, one body has been recovered.
Due to the explosive cargo, which includes landmines, authorities used drones to monitor the crash site.
