MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov's plane landed safely at Novosibirsk airport, and the minister's working visit is proceeding as planned, ministry official Svetlana Chumikova told Itar-Tass.
Earlier, some media reported that the minister’s plane was preparing to make an emergency landing.
The Yak-42 with the minister and ministry officials aboard landed at Tolmachevo airport at 12:02 Moscow time. Vladimir Puchkov's work in the Siberian Federal District is proceeding as planned, Chumikova said.
The minister planned to hold a meeting in Novosibirsk later on Friday to discuss regional security issues.
One of the engines of the minister’s plane on the flight to Novosibirsk was shut off after an alarm signal, ministry spokeswoman Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass later.
The panel signaled that one of the three engines malfunctioned. The crew decided to shut off the engine, she said, adding that the plane landed without any consequences.
An investigation into the incident is underway, she said.
