Putin Ordered the Destruction of 737 Boeing with 110 Passengers on Board

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said in a new documentary that he approved of a plan to shoot down a hijacked passenger jet four years ago. Ultimately, the tragedy was avoided.

"I was told: a plane en route from Ukraine to Istanbul was seized, captors demand landing in Sochi", Putin says.

"I told them: act according to the plan", Mr Putin says.

The Turkish Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800 plane was flying from Kharkiv in Ukraine to Istanbul in Turkey.

On hearing the information, Putin reportedly told his security officials to prepare to shoot down the plane.

Several minutes later, the President was informed that the call was a false alarm.

There were 110 passengers on-board, while over 40,000 people had gathered at the stadium to watch the opening ceremony, Kondrashov said. Alexei Navalny, a prominent leader of opposition, has been barred from standing in the election.

The call prompted Pelicans' fans to loudly boo Harden on each ensuing touch, but the vitriol didn't elicit the desired results. Gentry says Guthrie guessed on the call, unduly influencing the outcome of a game with playoff implications.

During the film Mr Putin was asked by interviewer Mr Kondrashov - a top state TV presenter and now Mr Putin's election campaign press secretary - if there were any circumstances in which he could envisage returning Crimea to Ukraine.

Magen said he did not know for sure what Putin meant by the statements. Putin replied, "Maybe they're not even Russians".

Last September the United Nations accused Russian Federation of committing "grave human rights violations" in Crimea.

The comments were immediately slammed by Jewish leaders who claimed they are rooted in a hatred and paranoia of Jews.

Their letter came roughly a week after an interview showed Putin NBC's Megyn Kelly that his country would "never" indict the nationals accused of election meddling.

He added: "It is deeply disturbing to see the Russian president giving new life to classic anti-Semitic stereotypes that have plagued his country for hundreds of years".

"We live in a moment when antisemitic violence is on the rise and words can have profound consequences, particularly when spoken by public figures or elected officials like President Putin", Greenblatt said. The film said Spiridon Putin cooked for other members of the Soviet establishment until not long before his death in 1965 at the age of 86, Reuters reported.
