The area around it is cordoned off by security forces.

One of the wreckage of Embraer Legacy, owned by the Wagner PMCs Evgeny Prigozhin, lies at the entrance to the village of Kuzhenkino in Tver region, RIA Novosti writes. It is located 2 km from the crash site. Police officers cordoned off the wreckage. They stop passing cars and ask drivers to inform the purpose of the trip. Several special services vehicles arrived at the wreckage site. The road to the farm in Kuzhenkino is blocked by traffic police and riot police. Cars of the RF IC continue to pull together to the crash site of the business jet.

At night, powerful searchlights were placed over the wreckage of the fuselage, after which criminologists were able to begin studying the wreckage and examining the bodies. Before that, the crash site was examined by sappers in full protection due to the probable danger.

All ten bodies of the victims found at the scene of the tragedy received severe mechanical damage. In the morning they began to be taken out for forensic examination. Most likely, they will be taken to the Tver morgue on Bobkova Street — the forensic examination bureau is located there.

Recall that the Federal Air Transport Agency confirmed the death of all ten people on board. Among them were passengers Evgeny Prigozhin, Dmitry Utkin, Sergey Skipping, Evgeny Makaryan, Alexander Totmin, Valery Chekalov and Nikolai Matuseev. Among the crew members were commander Alexey Levshin, co-pilot Rustam Karimov, and flight attendant Kristina Raspopova.
