Svetlana Petrenko of the Russian Investigative Committee said the committee has launched a criminal investigation into the incident.

She said: ‘No reports about technical malfunctions were received from the plane’s crew.’

A thick blanket of snow has covered the site of the crash, hindering the hunt for human remains and aircraft parts at the scene.

Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said the bodies are so badly damaged that DNA tests will need to be undertaken to identify them.
