It was later reported that it had crashed just outside Moscow.

An emergency services source has told Interfax news agency the plane crashed and there was "no chance" anyone could have survived.

The Emergencies Ministry said it had sent crews to the crash site.

Unverified images which have emerged on Russian media show what appears to be debris from the plane in the snow.

Witnesses also told Interfax they saw the plane on fire in mid-air before it crashed into the ground. The wreckage of the plane is supposed to be spread over a wide area.

It is not immediately clear what caused the crash, with weather conditions and pilot error said to be among the possible reasons.

It was flying to Orsk, a city in the Urals.
