The decision for the emergency landing was made by the airplane crew. According to Russia's Federal Agency for Air Transport, 159 passengers and six crew members were onboard. The passengers were accommodated at a nearby population centre.
Videos on social media showed passengers standing outside the plane after the emergency landing in Siberia.
"The Airbus A320 aircraft, flight U6-1383 en route from Sochi to Omsk, has performed an emergency off-airport landing. The landing was successful. There were 161 passengers onboard, no one was hurt," said Ural Airlines in a post on its Telegram channel.
