Russia's civil aviation chief said that the plane that crashed Monday into a snowy field in Siberia, killing 31 people, appeared to have been de-iced improperly, but he said there was no indication that negligence had caused the crash.
"One survivor stood up on his own and waited until he was given medical help and only then felt worse," Mr. Kiselyov told RIA Novosti.
Part of it was destroyed by a fire that burned at least six people to death, said Sergei Kiselyov, police chief at the Roshchino Airport in Tyumen.
