A small plane crashed outside Kiev. All five people killed have been identified as Czech nationals.
The chartered plane crashed Sunday afternoon in dense fog, killing all five on board - two crew members and three passengers, the Emergency Situations Ministry said in a statement.
The turboprop-powered Beechcraft had been on a charter flight from the Czech city of Hradec Kralove to the Zhulyany airport in Kiev 's southwestern outskirts. It crashed in a field near a major highway and burst into flames.
The plane belonged to the Czech company MINIB Ltd., said Natalia Alyushina, a Transport Ministry spokeswoman.
The cause of the crash is being investigated.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
