      But I see you belong to the many nazi from czech who hates russia :)
      You can hate it, but your country will be always behind it. Deal with it.

        And at least one Swede, the goalie. They played for a Russian league. You put on that uniform, you die there, Russia mourns and they are “Russian players.” I guess people want to be angry rather than mourn.

      • PF says:

        The player was Latvian, not Lithuanian. And it seems weird to hear Russians accusing Eastern Europeans of nazism, when there is much more nazism spreading around in your own country. I can’t remember hearing a single case about skinheads killing people in Eastern Europe because of their nationality, while it seems such news come from Russia almost every month. But this is not the place to argue about such topics.

        The catastrophe is plain horrible and my heart breaks for all those young, talented people and those who loved them. I hope medics will be able to save Galimov.

    R.I.P Pavol Demitra. One of the best players in the world and one BIG man for slovak hockey. Such a bad end of this hockey star…

    Every time a sports team dies this way, leaves a sorrow, and reminds that our existence here is never a granted thing.

    Stefan Liv, my all time favorite player was on this plane.

    Remember him from the first game I saw him play live in Jönköping. He stepped onto the ice before the game and instantly fell on his arse. Stod up, skated to the goal and shut the game completly. One of the best goaltenders outside the HNL.

  8. Archy Bunker says:

    My condolences. There are serious safety issues with domestic flights in Russia.

  9. SVK says:

    It’s sad to see so many talented people go like this. –Hopefully the investigation into this tragedy will put safeguards into place to ensure that this won’t happen again.

    Let’s remember: They were all humans, regardless of “country.” They may have all had families. We are all related…

  13. Verto says:

    Who is the responsible for this terrible incident???? answer is short and simple, “authorities”who are the responsible for Aviation safety.every second or third day Soviet/Russian origin plane is crashed due to lack of inspection and safety.ctop this criminal negligence and save Russian future ! ! ! ! ! ! !R I P to all of who died in this accident.

  14. ayaa says:

    What can the authorities or anyone else do when its pilot error that leads to a crash. Yes, that’s right. The preliminary investigation suggests that it was pilot error that caused this tragedy, not the fault of the plane or maintenance staff.

  15. mikefromCanada says:

    As much as man believes he has a hand in his own destiny, stark reminders like this remind us all how fragile we really are. Rest in peace Brad Mccrimmon, Pavol Demitra, Ruslan Salei, Karel Rachunek, Karlis Skrastins, Josef Vasicek, Alexander Vasyunov, Alex Karpovtsev, Igor Korolev and all the rest. May their families find peace in time.
