Putin declares Day of Mourning for Russia plane crash victims

Muscovites laid floral tributes at the headquarters of the famed Alexandrov Ensemble choir on Sunday, after at least 60 of its members were killed in the crash of a Russian military plane en route to Syria.

They had been heading to a Russian air base in Latakia to entertain troops in the run-up to the New Year.

All 92 people on board the Soviet-era Tupolev plane died early on Monday morning when it crashed into the Black Sea, shortly after taking off from Sochi.

Founded in 1928, The Alexandrov Ensemble, better known internationally as the Red Army Choir, was a symbol of Russia, performing not only in war zones but also to music lovers at concert halls across the world.

Speaking In St. Petersburg, Putin addressed reporters and looked visibly shaken by the tragedy.

I would like to express deep condolences to the families of our citizens who died this morning in the Black Sea, he said.

A Special Commission headed by the Minister of Transport will closely investigate the circumstances of the crash and everything will be done to support the families of the victims. A Day of Mourning will be observed tomorrow across Russia.

The Tupolev-154 was carrying mainly musicians from the famed Alexandrov Ensemble (previously known as the Red Army Choir). They were on route to the Khmeimim air base near Latakia for a new year concert.

Most of the 84 passengers were members of the choir, along with nine journalists.

Charity activist Dr. Elizaveta Glinka was also among those on board, the Presidential Council for Human Rights confirmed.

The defence ministry published a passenger list online, along with a hotline number for information: (Ru) 8-800-100-18-86

Eight crew members were on the plane.

The TU-154 disappeared from radar at around minutes after taking off near Sochi, where it had stopped to refuel, at 2.40 GMT.

Viktor Ozerov, head of the Russian parliaments defence committee said he totally excludes terrorism as a cause of the crash, Russian media reported. Ozerov said the crash could have been caused by a technical malfunction or crew error.
