Aeroflot flight 1515, a Boeing 737-800, made an emergency landing at Khanty-Mansiysk International Airport, Russia, after a passenger attempted to hijack the aircraft.
The flight had departed Surgut at 09:55 UTC. While en route to Moscow at FL340, a 41-year old male passenger claiming to be armed ordered the flight crew to divert to Afghanistan. At 10:22 UTC the pilots squawked 7600 (lost communications) on their transponder.
The aircraft landed safely at Khanty-Mansiysk at 11:17 UTC. After landing, security forces stormed the plane and detained the man. He was in a state of intoxication; he was not armed.
On August 28, 2019, the Ugra court sentenced the hijacker to compulsory treatment in a psychiatric hospital.
