    The plane was scheduled from Moscow to Orsk in the Orenburg Region and departed from Domodedovo airport but vanished from radar a few minutes after takeoff.

    Fragments of the plane were found near the village of Stepanovskoye in the Moscow Region’s Ramensky district after radio contact with flight 730 was lost and it vanished from radar.

    To date, rescue workers have found more than 300 plane’s fragments at the crash site, according to Russian emergency response headquarters.

    One of the victims was Vyacheslav Ivanov, an employee of Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear energy company. He is alleged to have been involved in Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One deal with Russia back in 2009 under Barack Obama.

    This name appears on the list of the deceased of An- 148 air crash in Moscow. Reports are yet to be confirmed whether or not it was the same person.

    Similarly, Business Insider reported that Sergei Millian, was on board the ill-fated plane. He was a Belarus-born businessman who had worked with the Trump Organisation and was reportedly a key source in the explosive Dossier alleging fictitious ties between President Donald Trump and Russia.

    Glenn Simpson, who co-founded the Democratic Party research firm Fusion GPS, told lawmakers that a trip which the Trump Organization representatives took to Moscow several years ago, had come onto the firm’s radar as part of their research to find dirt on Trump.

    This trip was organized by Sergei Millian, Simpson said. “Millian came up in connection with “Chris’. He had worked as one of the people around Trump who had a Russian background.”

    It appears that “Chris” is a reference to Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer hired by Fusion to research Trump’s non-existent Russia ties.

    Millian goes by another name – that name is Sergey Panchenko. It is also listed in the list of deceased passengers of the plane crash that has killed 71 people.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin is meanwhile keeping updated on the work done at the crash site of the An-148 passenger plane, but it is too early to talk about the causes of the accident yet, Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

    “The head of state is constantly briefed [on the work at the crash site and the probe into the causes],” he said. “If you mean some final report by the [government] commission [on the causes of the accident], of course, at the moment it is impossible to raise the issue of some report, because less than 24 hours have passed [since the tragedy].”

    According to Peskov, the president regularly receives information from the government commission set up to look into the causes of the accident.

    The Kremlin spokesman the final report will be presented to Putin on Monday. “Apparently, not enough time has passed to establish the reasons so far,” he said.

    • So long as we’re speculating, I wonder of Our Greatest Ally had anything to do with this. It was right after their plane was shot down for violating Syria’s sovereignty. They vowed revenge, and never forget, nor ever forgive.
