Dozens of friends and relatives attended the memorial service for Russian flight 7K9268 victim Nina Luschenko in the western Russian city of Veliky Novgorod, Thursday. The memorial service took place at the school where Luschenko used to work, with the funeral held later in the day. Close friends and relatives laid wreaths of flowers, photographs and placards reading "Remember" by the coffin of the deceased. Kogalymavia (Metrojet) flight 7K9268 was heading to Saint Petersburg from Sharm el-Sheikh when it crashed in the Sinai around 23 minutes after take-off on Saturday, killing everyone on board. The passenger plane broke up in the air and its wreckage was scattered over a vast area of the Sinai peninsula. There were a total of 224 people on board - 217 passengers, including 25 children, and seven crew members, with reports indicating that all but five passengers - four Ukrainians and one Belarusian - were Russian.
