MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin has sent his condolences to relatives of the 32 Russians killed on Tuesday when a Russian military transport plane crashed in Syria, the RIA news agency cited the Kremlin as saying.

Putin had also received a report on the crash from Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, RIA said.

His ministry had earlier said that the An-26 had crashed at Russia's Hmeymim air base in Latakia Province and that initial information suggested the crash may have been caused by a technical fault.
