The search and rescue operation in the Tula and Rostov regions is over
Transport Minister Igor Levitin, head of the state commission investigating the crashes, said they were most probably unrelated. At the same time, Kommersant reports the search for suspected terrorists - two Chechen women. A senior official in the Chechen Interior Ministry said that they had received requests from Moscow about two citizens of the republic who died in the air crashes, S. Dzhebirkhanova (Tu-154, Sibir Airlines) and Amanta Salm. Nagayeva (Tu-134, Volga-Aviaexpress). According to Volga-Avia, they have not received any requests from Nagayeva's relatives, though the families of other victims have contacted the airline. Interestingly, nobody other than the security services inquired about the fate of women suicide terrorists involved in other high-profile cases. Experts told Vremya Novostei that the nose and tails of both planes were found at a very long distance from each other. They stress that both the Tu-134 and Tu-154 have strong fuselages, and hence it is extremely strange that they broke up at a high altitude after reaching cruising altitude. The experts also think that the inability of the pilots to contact the tower indicates a terrorist attack. The rapid depressurization of the plane in such cases kills everyone on board instantly. The Tu-134 and Tu-154 planes are designed so that they cannot drop like a stone from the skies [provided the pilots are alive] even if all the engines fail; they can gradually glide down from an altitude of 10,000 km. In other words, the pilots should have had about ten minutes before impact.
