MOSCOW, April 2 (Itar-Tass) — No foreigners were aboard the ATR-72 liner that crashed near Tyumen. All the passengers are residents of Russian regions, a source in the operative group working at the site told Itar-Tass.

Aboard the plane were 33 residents of Tyumen and the region, six from the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area, one from Omsk, one from Tver, one from Sakhalin and one from Adygeya, the source said.

Forty three people were aboard the liner. Thirty one of them died.

Twelve people injured in the crash remain in hospitals. Ten men and two women aged from 24 to 51 survived. All of them are in grave condition.

The people need donor blood, the head of the donor blood ward of the Tyumen blood transfusion station, Svetlana Guryeva, told Itar-Tass on Monday.

Many people are injured. So, blood of all the groups is needed. Particularly needed is first-group and third-group blood. There is donor blood for the present, but it is used up very fast, as the people have many injuries, she said.

The station will work for longer time this Monday, until 15:00 Moscow time. Guryeva called on Tyumen residents not to be indifferent and go to the station to give blood.

About 30 psychologists are working in the hospitals to support the patients and the victims' relatives. Psychologists will also work at hotels where arriving relatives of the passengers and the crewmembers will stay.

The "hot line" telephone service opened in connection with the crash has received more than 200 calls.
