The captain Vishnyakov, who posted the video, was dismissed, reprimand was announced to Captain Kudashov, the document says. It is not specified what exactly the record in the deputy’s request is.

Earlier, the Sheremetyevo airport management demanded “the strictest way” to punish the people who made and uploaded a video with unethical commenting on the emergency landing of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.

On the evening of May 5, the Aeroflot plane, which was traveling from Moscow to Murmansk, caught fire during an emergency landing at Sheremetyevo. On board the ship were 78 people, including five crew members. Because of the fire, 41 people died, including one child and a flight attendant.

On May 15, a source close to the investigation told Kommersant that lightning struck the SSJ-100, but the Aeroflot pilots themselves made a critical situation. He believes that the crew began to “press” the board to the ground – this maneuver and became the cause of the disaster.
