Nine crew members were onboard. At least four of them were killed with the rest in a “grave” condition after being rushed to hospital.

 

Three of those killed – Vladimir Petrushin, Nikolai Gorbunov, and Dmitry Andreev – died at the crash site, while a fourth died in hospital.

 

It is understood that there were no civilian casualties on the ground, despite the plane crashing close to both shops and residential areas.
