The court found Denis Edokimov guilty of violating the rules for operating an aircraft, which caused the death of people. In addition to imprisonment, he received an additional punishment: a driving ban for three years. In addition, the claims of the victims for compensation for moral damages in the total amount of 1.5 million rubles were fulfilled.

Therefore, the court considered the arguments of the state prosecutor’s office well founded. According to investigators, Denis Evdokimov made a number of fatal mistakes during the flight to Murmansk. While he was taking off from Sheremetyevo, the plane was struck by lightning. Radio communication was lost and the automatic systems that smoothed the pilot’s movements were also turned off.

During the return to Sheremetyevo, the pilot, as experts believe, unreasonably ignored the wind shear alarm. As a result, the plane landed hard, the landing gear collapsed and punctured the fuel tanks. A fire broke out in which 40 passengers and one crew member died.

The pilot himself and his defense insisted on innocence and explained the incident with technical problems.
