It is likely to increase concerns about Russian aviation safety less than three months after a crash that killed 45.

The Russian-made plane was carrying 37 passengers and eight crew to Minsk in Belarus when it crashed a few kilometers (miles) from the airport at Tunoshna outside Yaroslavl, 250 km (150 miles) north of Moscow, the Emergencies Ministry said.
