The Tupolev Tu-134 Russian airliner crashed in the country's Republic of Karelia has killed at least forty-four people and left eight injured on late Monday evening. The RusAir aircraft was traveling from Moscow to Petrozavodsk when it encountered with the terrible accident. The aircraft carried nine crew-members and 43 passengers on board.
