"The fate of the occupants is not yet known,"... Let's hope they somehow survived. 12 people on board according to avherald...

11 seems a lot, surely they can't all be crew.

Russians tend to practically live on these planes. There could have been four pilots, two engineers, a loadmaster, a mechanic, and three others.

Avis-Amur only operated one An-12, so it would appear to be this one:

RA-11125 An-12BP c/n 3341006

Could be right indeed. The An12 I was on twice operated with a standard 8 crewmembers, including the navigator and loadmaster.
