Frequent plane crashes - another huge problem for Russia

One of Russia's top hockey teams - Yaroslavl Lokomotiv was killed in a plane crash yesterday. The accident obliterated most of Russia's prominent hockey players along with the captain of Slovakian national team and several NHL veterans.

Alas, this is not a single plane crash - Russia has become notorious for its tragic plane crashes that either take away lives of its nuclear experts, or almost kills members of its famous pop-group.

In my humble opinion, frequent and fatal plane crashes are become another of the biggest problems for Russia besides alcohol and demographics. If alcohol decimates the Russians and demographics doesn't replace population loss, these crashes threaten to take away all cream of the society.
