VLADIVOSTOK, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The insurance companies and the Yak Service air company will pay compensations to the relatives of the air crash victims, Russian prime minister’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
“All compensations will be paid by the insurance companies and the air carrier. No special decisions are needed from the government,” he said.
The compensations are allocated in case of the death of an air passenger under the current Aviation Code.
Putin’s spokesman added that no compensations are needed from the reserve fund of the government.
