“I was deeply saddened by the news of the tragic disaster of the passenger aircraft travelling from Moscow to Orsk which claimed a great many lives. We share the pain of the victims’ relatives together with the Hungarian people. Please accept my most sincere condolences”, Mr Orbán wrote.
The An-148 jet of the Russian airline Saratovski Avialini heading for Orsk disappeared from radar screens four minutes after take-off on Sunday. The plane crashed, and all 65 passengers, including three children, and six crew members on board were killed.
