MOSCOW, January 16. /TASS/. There are no Russian nationals among the victims of the Boeing 747 cargo plane crash near Bishkek, an employee of the Russian Embassy in Bishkek told TASS on Monday.
"We have checked the information," the source said. "There are no Russian citizens among the victims."
The embassy also confirmed that the cargo plane was owned by a Turkish airline.
The Boeing 747 cargo plane crashed near the Manas International Airport at 7.30 a.m. local time (01.30 a.m. GMT) during the landing.
