No Armenian citizens or nationals were hurt when a passenger plane crash-landed at a Moscow airport.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Anna Naghdalyan confirmed in a conversation with PanARMENIAN.Net that no Armenians were among the casualties.

Aeroflot flight SU 1492 skidded down the runway at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, its rear section ablaze and spilling thick, black smoke.
