Russian Proscution Condemnation

Oct
31

The International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) strongly condemns the Russian prosecutors’ decision to charge air traffic controllers with “causing multiple deaths through negligence by breaching air safety rules”, following the accident of October 20 at Moscow's Vnukovo airport and before the official investigation on the causes of this tragic event.

This decision does not respect the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirement for accident investigation to establish factual causes, with the aim to prevent future occurrences. As the accident is still under investigation with no formal conclusions at this stage, it is shocking to see controllers publicly identified and already being charged with criminal offense. In a factual statement issued by the Interstate Aviation Committee (MAK) on the 24th of October the sequence of events described do not indicate any form of criminal negligence by the Air Traffic Control staff on duty.
