A source told Russia’s Interfax news agency: “The airplane reportedly crashed outside Argunovo village in the Moscow region.
“The crew and passengers had no chance.”
The aircraft was heading for Orsk, a city close to the Russia-Kazakhstan border.
The Russian Emergencies Ministry said it is verifying reports that the An-148 has crashed outside Moscow.

Interesting… no cause listed. No speculation, either.
This one is wide open for accusations.
I’ve recently decided all major plane crashes are caused, intentional, take downs. when was the last major airline that crashed in the US?? ………………… exactly!
I was just thinking this might be retaliation from Israel for the F-16 shot down yesterday in Israeli air space.
Russia does alot of business with Iran and Syria.
Good point, Jim.
Anything is possible, and the worst that is possible is the likeliest to be true when it comes to the stinking jews.
So who was on the plane? They don’t just shoot down random planes.
