RF President Vladimir Putin has condoled with RA President Robert
Kocharyan on the crash of the Armenian airplane flying from Yerevan
to Adler. He announced that it is the tragedy of the Armenian and
Russian nations.

In Russia too, like Armenia, May 5 has been announced a mourning
day. Let us remind you that 26 of the passengers of the plane were
citizens of Russia.
