Kazakhstan Military Prosecutor blames Russia for the crash of MiG-31 military aircraft in Karaganda oblast, Tengrinews reports.

The imperfect repairs done in Russia were the cause of the MiG-31 aircraft crash, representative of the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office Zhenis Temekov said at the briefing earlier this week.

"We have done a wide range of investigative activities and forensic inquiries, including the tests done by the Russian R&D Center for Exploitation and Maintenance of Aviation Equipment (Aircraft Maintenance and Repair Center), in the course of the investigation. Based on the Russian experts’ conclusion, the crash was caused by disconnection of the flight control actuator because of inadvertent unscrewing of the nut that held it in place. According to the statement of the commission that investigated the accident, this technical problem occurred because of a procedures violation during repairs of the aircraft at the 514 Aircraft-Repairing Plant in Rzhev, Russia," Zhenis Temekov said.

According to him, the overhaul was made in the beginning of this year. "At the moment we thinking about filing a lawsuit to a Russian court for the further investigation," he added.

The MiG-31 military airplane of the Military Department No. 50185 of the Defense Ministry crashed during a training flightin Karaganda Oblast in central Kazakhstan at 10:41 p.m. on April 23, 2013. The crew ejected themselves from the plane before the crash. Commander pilot Colonel Marat Yedigeev died and aeronavigator Major Ruslan Galimzyanov was hospitalized with injuries. The accident was reportedly caused by a technical failure.

Colonel Marat Yedigeev was awarded postmortem with Aibyn (bravery) Medal of the 1st Degree for his courage and determination while on military duty.

A criminal case was initiated by the Kazakhstan military prosecutors in relation to the crash on the Article 392 of Kazakhstan Criminal Code (violation of rules for flights or preparation to flights).
