    It is indeed sad.

    But it decended pretty steep, so I dunno what really happened as everyone is blaming the bad weather.

    Its difficult to make much out from that video, but it appeared to be on flames before it hit the ground?
    Thats, unusual if the cause is bad weather...

    Seems to be on fire, and that is what the intial eyewitness reports stated. An alternate view on this video is that it is the aircraft lights diffused by the rain, but it looks like flames to me.

    Do the video slow-mo and the light/flame is at the nose of the plane... very steep descent.

    ^ A CGI animation of this has been shown on TV and they have the aircraft coming down at about a 70 degree angle. This, if correct, and it's too early yet to be sure, seems to go against a wing dipping and hitting the ground due to wind shear, as is what is given as a possible cause. No witnesses have mentioned it cartwheeling, which is possible if it dipped a wing into the ground, just straight down.

    Edit: Of the eight Ukranians on the flight, so far four are confirmed to be from Donbass, one from DNR and three from LNR, with one of them only five years.

    Blast rocks Russia's Makhachkala suburb as motor convoy with law enforcers moves by More: http://tass.ru/en/society/865925

    Currently still ongoing investigation more details later. But apparently two police cars destroyed. I pray that all is good, but this was expected since a anti terror operations are undergoing in the destabilized republic.

    As I said in the thread in the army section, I have a suspicion it maybe intentional. Old building + work being done on it + already having 3 newer buildings up and operational just gives me an idea that is an insurance scam. You hear it happening here with gov sites. But I could be wrong and may have been shoddy work or an oversight.

    As i have few friends working in Russia on construction, mostly welding and similar specialised jobs, they say Russians love dodging basic rules when its about safety. Its quite similar here tho if construction company is one of the domestic ones.
