SINGAPORE, December 28. /TASS/. No Russians were on board an AirAsia jet gone missing, official of the consular department at Russian Embassy in Indonesia Roman Romanov told TASS on Sunday.
"We have got in contact with the air carrier and they confirmed to us that there were no Russians aboard. However, we keep following the situation," the diplomat said.
