A Komi Avia Tupolev 134 aircraft was hijacked while en route from Syktyvkar, Russia, to Minsk, Belarus. The hijacker initially directed that the plane land in
Tallinn, Estonia. He claimed to have an explosive device and said he would detonate it if his demands were not met. Shortly after landing, he demanded to be taken to Western Europe. Several hours later, he released his hostages and surrendered. He explained to authorities that he was seeking political asylum and did not want to land in a Commonwealth of Independent States country. He did not have an explosive device but carried two small gasoline-filled bottles. There were no injuries.
