Condolences from the Ombudsman to the families and relatives of the victims of the recent plane crash


I was deeply saddened to learn about the plane crash into the Black Sea that claimed the lives of 92 people. There were the performers of the Alexandrov Ensemble, journalists of the First Channel, “Zvezda” and NTV (Russia) and Doctor Liza, well-known all over the Republic, on board.

I extend my sincere condolences to the families and relatives of the victims. I wish strength and fortitude to them in this hour of great pain and sorrow. Our hearts and our prayers are with you.

I express my gratitude to the relatives of Elizaveta Glinka for the assistance she had provided to the children of the Donetsk People’s Republic, for the support and hope she gave to the residents of our state, for her sincerity, dedication and commitment. With her care many Donbass children were granted a second chance for happy and prosperous future. She devoted her life to tireless, conscientious and dedicated work of selfless service to children, society and the homeland. This death is a painful loss to all of us. The memory of her as an outstanding professional, unique personality and helpful person will live forever in our hearts.
