Article published in the Kommersant newspaper



The Kommersant newspaper published an article entitled: “The Russian catastrophe was heard in Toulouse.” It tells about the beginning of the consideration of the claim of relatives of the victims of the crash of the UTair ATR-72 aircraft, which occurred in 2012 near Tyumen.

The victims, not agreeing with the compensation offered in Russia, went to court in France, believing that they would be able to achieve justice there. French jurisdiction in this case was confirmed by the French Court of Cassation in 2019. This decision was made despite repeated attempts by the defendants to challenge it. The beginning of the hearings in Toulouse was an important step in the relatives’ efforts to achieve fair compensation and bring to justice those involved in the tragedy.
