    A Russian Defence Ministry plane carrying some 91 people crashed on Sunday, shortly after departing from the city of Sochi enroute to Syria’s Latakia province, authorities said.

    The Emergencies Ministry confirmed the crash of the missing Tu-154 plane, saying that the debris of the aircraft along with personal belongings of the people onboard — 83 passengers and eight crew members were discovered in the Black Sea, Sputnik News Agency reported.

    “According to preliminary findings, the missing TU-154 arrived in Sochi from Chkalovsky airport in Moscow region for refuelling. Most likely, it crashed in mountainous area of Krasnodar territory,” an Emergencies Ministry official told Sputnik.

    The source said the disappeared plane was heading to Syria’s Hmeimim airbase.

    The possible reasons for the crash could be technical malfunction or pilot error.

    The source added that the plane disappeared from radars 20 minutes after takeoff from Sochi Adler Airport. It departed at 5.20 a.m., and the contact was lost at about 5.40 a.m.

    Journalists, military personnel, musicians from Alexandrov Ensemble, an official army choir of the Russian armed forces, were onboard.

    The Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviation) told Sputnik News Agency that the flight was “not civilian”.

    The Tu-154 is a three-engine medium-range airliner produced by Russian aerospace and defence company Tupolev.

    It is one of the fastest civilian aircraft in use and widely used in extreme Arctic conditions.
