I was pretty suspicious of this.
But I don’t think Russia itself has any reason to lie.
They do have a bad record of air disasters, the Russians.
Russian officials say they are no longer considering terrorism a focus in their investigations into a military plane crash on Sunday morning.
“The Russian transportation agency considers technical problems or pilot error the most likely causes for the crash,” NPR’s Lucian Kim reports.
Search efforts in the Black Sea have recovered fragments of the Russian military jet. Eleven bodies were also recovered as of Monday morning; all 92 people on board the plane are believed to have died.
There were 84 passengers and 8 crew members aboard when the plane went down shortly after taking off from Sochi, Russia, toward Syria.
Still, crazy to just crash a jet into the sea like that.
