March 5 (Bloomberg) -- An airplane crashed in the Belgorod region of central Russia this morning, killing all six people on board, including two citizens of Myanmar, Emergency Situations Ministry spokeswoman Yelena Smirnykh said by telephone.

The Antonov An-148 regional jet belonged to OAO VASO, the Voronezh-based company that produces the aircraft, the Investigative Committee said on its website. The jet crashed 140 kilometers (87 miles) from Voronezh, the committee said.

The An-148 was one of two to be delivered to Myanmar’s air force under a contract signed last year, Interfax reported, citing an unidentified official close to OAO United Aircraft Corp., Russia’s state-controlled umbrella company for aviation designers and manufacturers.

United Aircraft spokesman Maxim Syssoev declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg News.
