The deceased patient of a hospital in Tyumen has been identified as Lyudmila Volkova.

The surviving 11 passengers are still hospitalized.

Six of them remain in a serious condition and one is in a critical condition at an intensive care unit in a hospital in Tyumen.

Three other survivors, who are in a stable condition, are being treated at the same hospital.
