Following the fire-accident involving a Tupolev Tu-154 of Kogalymavia in January 2011, the Ural Transport Prosecutor’s Office audited the airline regarding safety.
It was established that the airline violated the requirements of aviation and fire safety. For example, the emergency response plan did not meet the requirements, and a fire extinguisher was not working.
Also, a set of jet engine fan blades were discovered that were manufactured by the Moscow Machine-Building Plant “Vlered”.
However, the passport of the unit contained a forged stamp and fake signature of an employee.
