An Il-86 plane belonging to the Russian Defense Ministry has delivered to Moscow ten bodies and 86 remnants of victims of the Tu-154 plane crash near Sochi.

Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov has announced at a briefing that experts started taking genetic material from relatives of the victims to identify the bodies.

The search operation near the Sochi-Adler airport continues. Two manned underwater vehicles belonging to the Russian Geographic Society have been delivered to the search area. The defense ministry increased the number of drones used in the operation. Additionally, 45 boats and 5 helicopters are engaged in the search operation.

The Tu-154 plane belonging to the Russian defense ministry crashed into the Black Sea shortly after the take-off from Sochi-Adler airport on Sunday morning. 92 people were onboard, including reporters of the First Channel, NTV and Zvezda TV-channels, more than 60 musicians of the Alexandrov Ensemble and Yelizaveta Glinka known in Russia as Doctor Liza, a famous charity worker.
