Military prosecutors have started an inquiry into the death of three pilots in a Russian Black Sea Fleet plane crash in Ukraine.
Three people were killed and one seriously injured when a Russian
military plane crashed onto a runway of an airfield belonging to the
Russian Black Sea Fleet seaborne aviation in the village of Kacha,
Crimea, during a training flight at 1738 on Oct. 12.
“In light of the crash, the Southern Military District’s prosecutor’s
office is conducting an inquiry into the observance of the law on
flight rules and preparations for flights,” a spokesperson for the Main
Military Prosecutor’s Office told Interfax.
“Causes and circumstances of the incident are being looked into during the inquiry,” he said.
“Prosecution response measures will be taken based on results of the inquiry,” he added.
Kacha is a resort community in the western coast of the Crimean
Peninsula. The area administratively belongs to Sevastopol City Council.
