MOSCOW, May 18 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Emergencies Ministry's specialists continue the search work at the Superjet crash site in Indonesia, while their Indonesian colleagues have completed the operation to search for remains of the victims, a source at the Russian ministry told Itar-Tass.
Media cited the Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency's chief Daryatmo as saying the search operation to recover the remains of the victims was completed, but if Russian specialists wanted to continue the work to gather fragments of the plane, the Indonesian colleagues were ready to help them.
Russian rescuers are continuing to work there, including searching for the second flight recorder, the Russian source said.
More than 80 EMERCOM specialists with mountain climbing equipment are in Indonesia at present. They participate in the work on the slope of Mount Salak.
The Superjet crashed on May 9. The liner was on a sales-promotional flight in Indonesia. It crashed not far from Jakarta in the inaccessible terrain of Mount Salak at a height of 1.7 km, killing all the 45 people aboard – eight Russians, 35 Indonesians, a French citizen and a U.S. citizen. Fifteen of the victims are preliminary identified.
