Moscow: A Russian passenger plane carrying 71 people crashed outside Moscow on Sunday after taking off from the capital s Domodedovo airport, killing everyone on board.

The Antonov An-148 plane operated by the domestic Saratov Airlines was flying to Orsk, a city in the Urals, and crashed in the Ramensky district on the outskirts of Moscow.

"Sixty-five passengers and six crew members were on board, and all of them died," Russia s office of transport investigations said in a statement.

News agencies said witnesses in the village of Argunovo saw a burning plane falling from the sky.

President Vladimir Putin offered "his profound condolences to those who lost their relatives in the crash," his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

State television aired a video of the crash site, showing parts of the wreckage in the snow.

Russia has seen record high snowfall in recent days and visibility was reportedly poor.

The Russian-made plane was reportedly seven years old and bought by Saratov Airlines from another Russian airline a year ago.
