Vnukovo airport's air traffic controller released from custody

On 22 September, Alexander Kruglov, an air controller, Svetlana Krivsun, a trainee of the air control department, and Roman Dunayev, the chief of flights at Vnukovo have been released as the maximum allowable term for keeping them in custody has expired.

Overnight to October 21, 2014, a Falcon business jet of the French oil corporation Total staked a snowplow during takeoff from Moscow's Vnukovo airport, caught fire and crashed on the runway. 

Russian authorities instituted a criminal case on charges of encroachment on the regulations for safe air traffic and safe aircraft operations.

The court issued authorization for arresting Alexander Kruglov, while placing Roman Dunayev and Svetlana Krivsun under house arrest.

The Russia's Federal Trade Union of Air Traffic Controllers had begun a nationwide and international campaign of solidarity with their detained colleagues.
