YEKATERINBURG, April 4 (Itar-Tass) — Investigative actions have been completed at the site of an ATR-72 passenger plane crash outside Tyumen, Tyumen region governor’s spokeswoman Olga Frolova has told Tass.
According to the spokeswoman, after specialists from the French plant that produced the plane examine the debris, they will be transported to one of airport hangars, where specialists from the Interstate Aviation Committee will continue work.
The Tyumen Region’s Governor Vladimir Yakushev has held another session of the emergency headquarters, marking that the condition of all survivors remains stably grave. However, some patients demonstrate a positive trend. “The crisis may happen on the fifth, sixth or even the twelfth day in case of such injuries, and it’s only then that we will be able to make forecasts on their recovery with more confidence,” the governor added.
He also reported that 13 families have received money as compensations from the regional budget, while the rest will receive them within the next few days.
The plane operated by UTair went down shortly after taking off from Tyumen’s Roschino Airport early on Wednesday. Twelve people survived and 31 were killed in the crash.
