MOSCOW, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Foreign Ministry is taking measures to clarify the situation with a Russian plane that came under threat over Syria, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
“At 04:55 Moscow time on April 29, when entering Syria’s airspace the crew of a plane belonging to Russia’s NordWind Airlines, en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to Kazan, registered armed hostilities on the ground, which in their opinion could endanger the aircraft and the 159 passengers aboard,” Lukashevich told ITAR-TASS.
The Foreign Ministry is “taking urgent measures to clarify all the circumstances of this situation, including in contact with the Syrian authorities.”
