Russian Plane Crashes Near Moscow, Killing All People On Board: Agencies

A Russian passenger plane carrying 71 people crashed near Moscow shortly after taking off from one of the city's airports Sunday.

Russia's Saratov airline's plane crashes killing all 71 souls aboard including 65 passengers and 6 crew members.

It is said to have come down near the village of Argunovo, in the Ramenskoye District some 80 kilometres southeast of Moscow and 60 kilometres from Domodedovo.

Orsk is the second biggest city in the Orenburg region, near Russia's border with Kazakhstan.

Russian media reported that the emergency services had been unable to reach the crash site by road and rescue workers had walked to the scene on foot.

"Judging by everything, at the moment there are no survivors of this air disaster", Minister Maksim Sokolov said of the crash Sunday afternoon local time outside Moscow.

Unnamed investigators told Russian website gazeta.ru that the pilot asked for emergency landing clearance after reporting some type of malfunction, according to the BBC.
