MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been briefed on the charter flight’s crash near Yaroslavl, in which the city’s Locomotive ice hockey team died. Putin instructed Transport Minister Igor Levitin to urgently fly to the site of the incident.
“Levitin has been instructed to arrange for the necessary measures to find out the causes of the crash,” the prime minister’s press-secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
According to the latest information available, there were 37 people on board.
The liner of the Yak-Service air carrier was bound for Minsk, where the team it was carrying was to play a scheduled match of the continental hockey league on Thursday.
As Itar-Tass has learned from the Emergency Situations Ministry, the plane left Yaroslavl’s airport to fall apart seconds after takeoff during the climb. It rammed into the ground and fell apart. The tragedy occurred at 16:05 two kilometers away from the runway.
