Jet Suffers Engine Failure

A Ural Airlines Tu-154 landed safely at a Yekaterinburg airport Friday after an engine failure forced the jet to return to the Urals city soon after takeoff, Interfax reported.

The plane was heading to Mineralniye Vody when it suffered an unspecified problem with one of its three engines near Chelyabinsk, the report said, citing the Federal Air Transport Agency.

The engine was turned off, and the plane circled the Yekaterinburg airport to burn off most of its fuel before landing.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
