    "A huge blaze has erupted in a five-storied building on the grounds of a machinery plant in northwest Moscow, producing flames rising into sky. The fire engulfed the area of some 15,000 square meters, Russian Emergencies Ministry said. According to data issued by a mobile chemical laboratory that is also present at the scene, the dangerous emissions’ concentration around the fire zone has stayed within normal range so far.

    Witnesses reported the fire to the emergency services at 20:40 local time (17:40 GMT) with the first fire teams arriving at the scene five minutes later, Izvestia daily reports. The blaze has soon spread to another two nearby five-story buildings. The firefighters have raised the complexity rating of the blaze several times and it has been eventually assigned the fourth rating out of five possible. Twenty-nine fire teams consisting of almost 100 firefighters are now combating the blaze."

    A collapse caused by a suspected brittle rock burst in Vorkuta, Russia, has reportedly left up to 90 coal miners trapped underground. Evacuation of the personnel is underway.
    The incident occurred at the Severnaya coal mine in the northern Russian Komi Republic.

    The mine is beyond the Arctic Circle and is difficult to reach. Russia’s Emergency Ministry confirmed to RT that the number of mining workers trapped underground could be as many as 90, yet the source in the ministry assured that the situation has been taken under control and the miners are being taken to the surface in small groups.

    "A FlyDubai passenger Boeing en route from Dubai has crashed during landing in the southern Russian city of Rostov on Don, airport traffic control services told Russian media Sources in air-traffic control services said that the plane belongs to the FlyDubai airline. The plane apparently crashed in conditions of poor visibility a source in the regional emergency services told RIA. “According to preliminary data, the Boeing 737 crashed in poor visibility conditions, some 50-100 meters left of the runway. The fate of passengers and crew is being determined,” the source said. “The plane, according to preliminary data, crashed during the second approach,” the source told Interfax. "More than 100 passengers could have been on board. After the crash a strong fire started."

    According to other sources, 55 people were on board, LiveNews reported. There were no immediate reports of any survivors. CCTV camera footage posted on YouTube claims to have captured the moment of the explosion as the aircraft impacted the ground. However, its authenticity could not be immediately verified."

    Not even the airline is Russian, but well, it serves to reinforce how unsafe Russian planes and companies are - after all it happened in Russia, it has to be their fault.

    1. Boeing 738 does not exist
    2. Boeing is not Ru clearly
    3. Airline is not Ru
    4. Aircraft was not Ru owned either

    It doesnt make any sense from any angle

    Agreed with everything except the first point, 738 is a common shortened designation for the 737-800.

    True, but its nowhere officially designated as such from what i am aware. Plus how many "common" people knows that fact? Between 3-5% of population probably.

    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.

    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.
