“Information on the violation of public order on board an aircraft was received by the duty-unit of the Linear Police Division at the Sochi airport a few minutes before the departure of the Sochi-Moscow flight.
A crew of the police patrol service immediately arrived to the airliner. As members of the aircraft crew explained, when boarding the plane, two men had behaved aggressively, insulting others. Passengers who violated public order were detained and sent for medical examination, as a result of which it was established that they were in a state of alcoholic intoxication,” said the MIA of Russia official representative Irina Volk.
For appearing in a public place in a state of alcoholic intoxication and petty hooliganism, the detainees were brought to administrative responsibility in accordance with Articles 20.21 and 20.1 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation. They were penalized with a fine of 1500 rubles each.
