MOSCOW, November 17, 22:59 /ITAR-TASS/. List of victims of Sunday night's air crash in the airport of Kazan, the capital of Russia's constituent region of Tatarstan, contains the name of Irek Minnikhanov, the son of Tatarstani President Rustam Minnikhanov, regional Vice-President Yuri Kamaltynov told reporters.
It also contains the name of Alexander Antonov, the chief of the regional branch of Russia's Federal Security Service /FSB/.
At the time of reporting, the list published by the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ contained 44 surnamed, while the information on another six victims was being clarified.
The Boeing 737 operated by the regional airline Tatarstan lost altitude and hit the runway at 19:26 Moscow Standard Time in the final moments of a flight from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. The crew was making a second attempt to land after a go-around.
The jet’s fuel tanks exploded upon impact, thus causing fire that was extinguished fairly quickly.
The jet had forty-four passengers and six crewmembers aboard. None of them survived.
EMERCOM officials also said there were no children among the passengers.
Sources in the airline’s management said the jet was fully airworthy before departure from Moscow.
