The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has ordered an inquiry into flagship
The Russian Prosecutor General's Office has ordered an inquiry into flagship air carrier Aeroflot's compliance with flight safety regulations, after a plane owned by its subsidiary crashed killing 88 people on board.

The Boeing-737 crashed on a Siberian railroad track linking Yekaterinburg and Perm as it made a landing approach to Perm airport on Sunday. The crash is the first air tragedy to hit Aeroflot for 14 years.

"In the wake of the crash of a Boeing-737 owned by Aeroflot's subsidiary Aeroflot Nord on September 14, the Prosecutor General's Office has instructed transport prosecutor's offices to examine the air carrier and its subsidiaries' compliance with aviation and flight safety legislation and take measures to prevent violations threatening flight security," the top prosecutor's office said on its website.

Checks were also ordered at the Federal Air Transportation Agency and the transport watchdog.

Technical failure is seen as the most likely cause of the crash.
