The plane carried 92 people, the pride of Russia, 64 members of the Alexandrov Ensemble choir of the Russian Armed Forces and its director Valery Khalilov, a famous human rights activist Elizaveta Glinka, also known as Doctor Lyza, who saved and helped ill children, 9 journalists from the Russian channels Channel One, NTV and Zvezda, 8 crew members, military troops and civil officials, true to their duty, on their way to the airbase Khmeimim, Syria, to congratulate Russian troops with the coming holydays. Doctor Liza was delivering medicine and other supplies for the Syrian hospital.

                                                              
“The main human right is the right to live. In these difficult times it is constantly violated. It is hard for me to see dead and wounded children of Donbass, dead and wounded children of Syria. Tomorrow I go to Donezk and after that, to Syria. As well as dozens of other volunteers, who are engaged in humanitarian activities, we are never sure that we will come back alive. As war is a hell on Earth.  And I know what I’m speaking about. But we are sure that kindness, compassion and mercy are more powerful than any weapon”, - told Elizaveta Glinka in her last public speech.
 
A memorial list with the names of the lost people and flowers was placed at the Academy main hall. Flags were lowered at the Alley of Glory of the Patriotic War Heroes. We mourn and express our sincere condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the fallen.
