That is just awful!!! :plush27: :plush27: :plush27: It's the biggest avia tragedy with Soviet-Russian athlets. Two previous ones took place: 1.in 1950, 11 ice hokey players were killed, 2. in 1979, 17 football players were killed, and now this one, #3. 26 players were killed, plus Lokomotiv staffs and the air crew.

The worst part is this tragedy became world famous because it hits the list of world accidents with athlets invloved. In fact the number of air accidents is too high in modern Russia. It makes me mad :plush43: . Most of them are not internationally known.

After Yana, also Zhenya tweeted about yesterday's plane crash:

1 hour ago from EvgeniPlushenko:
Мои искренние соболезнования всем родным, близким погибших и болельщикам ярославского Локомотива. Вы навсегда в наших сердцах! Вечная память

Translation:
"My sincere condolences to all relatives, friends of the victims and supporters of the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv. You are forever in our hearts! Eternal memory"

Goodbye, Lokomotiv! Video of heartbreaking farewell ceremony on ice



"A heart-stirring requiem mass has taken place at the Minsk ice hockey arena, where this evening local side Dynamo were supposed to take on Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, the team which tragically died in Wednesday's plane crash. All tickets for the game had been sold long before the tragedy. Soon after the sad news spread worldwide, the game's organizers decided to arrange a mass at the arena, honoring the legacy of the team. Not a single ticket had been returned as the ceremony was held in the packed arena. Each spectator brought flowers. All the Belarusian leadership, including President Aleksandr Lukashenko, were present at the event. Never was the arena that silent as 37 huge portraits of the players and staff were placed on the ice. A requiem mass was performed by an orchestra, while portraits of the departed Yaroslavl friends and icons appeared on the scoreboard. Each picture was met with a storm of applause, after which the Dynamo players scored a puck each in their own net. Similar ceremonies were held on Thursday evening in a dozen Russian and CIS cities."

Perfect. In this leather jacket, with smile he (you) is (are) so-o-oo cute.
But I very, very love your former avatar. And I miss it. That image reflected wise person. I can’t forget the attitude, eyes, glance, and curly hair. :sh_ок: Meditative, thoughtful, romantic person looked at us. It seems to me you are the person like that, because, as rule, your comments always are clever, essential and precise. It is pleasure to read them. Moreover… When you try to write in Russian some words or not long phrases, you do it without any mistakes or with minor ones! (I am Russian girl, trying to study English). As in English, in Russian your posts sound beautiful too!
Your attendance on Plushy’ forum makes this forum rich. I appreciate! Thank you.
With love…. :gir_l-fri_end: Have a good day, Alyson! :son-ce:
