“The video records were confiscated and are being examined in detail from the CCTV cameras of the airport that captured the falling trajectory of the airliner,” he said. “Fuel samples were already taken to inspect its quality. Detectives are also taking biological samples for DNA testing to identify the air crash victims.

Two flight recorders were found at the crash site, head of the Interstate Aviation Committee Tatiana Anodina said.
