Media sources reported that a Russian airplane crashed in Ukraine on Tuesday killing at least 170 people including about 45 children. Ukraine authorities said there were no survivors. The Soviet designed aircraft usually used for regional flights crashed due to either a thunder storm or turbulence, Russian authorities said. Ukraine authorities however said there might have been a fire aboard the plane prior to the crash.
