KIEV, September 8 (Itar-Tass) — Family members and relatives of Daniil Sobchenko and Vitaly Anikeyenko, the Ukrainian hockey players who died in Wednesday's air crash in Russia, have asked for an opportunity to bury the two men at home.
Both athletes were trained and brought to stardom in sports by the Kiev school of ice hockey.
As for Alexander Vyukhin, the third athlete who played for the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl club and had a Ukrainian passport, he will be buried in the Siberian city of Omsk, said Alexander Dikusarov, an official spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
Wednesday’s crash of a Yakovlev-42 medium-range jet seconds after takeoff from the Yaroslavl airport took away the lives of 43 people, leaving only two survivors. It wiped out Russia’s top-rated Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey team practically in full force.
Of the 45 people aboard, eleven were citizens of foreign countries.
