After conducting an inquiry into the fall of a Su-24M plane three kilometres away from the residential site of Kalmyk-Abdrashevo, the Kurgan Region, on February 13, the Russian Investigative Committee's Chelyabinsk military department opened a criminal case on charges of violation of the flight and flight preparation regulations (Article 351 of the Russian Criminal Code), a source at the Main Military Investigative Department told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
