A Russian passenger plane missing from a radar in Siberia has been found to be in critical condition, the Ministry of Emergency Sector said, adding that there were survivors among 17 people thought to be on board.

The flight from the town of Kedrovy to the provincial capital of Tomsk was carrying between 13 and 17 passengers, TASS and RIA news agency said local officials said.
This comes less than two weeks after Antonov-26 crashed into an undisclosed hurricane in Russia’s remote Kamchatka, killing 28 people on board.
The Antonov-28 plane, which was missing in Tomsk, hit the Kamchatka forest in 2012 in an accident that killed 10 people. Investigators said all pilots were drunk at the time of the accident.
Russia’s aviation safety systems have changed in recent years but accidents, especially regarding older aircraft in remote areas, are not uncommon.
