An Ikar Boeing 767-300, registration VP-BMC performing flight IK-123 from Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) to Simferopol (Ukraine), landed on Simferopol’s runway 19 at 10:20L (07:20Z) but veered right off the runway coming to a stop about 2310 meters/7580 feet down the runway with nose and right hand main gear off the paved surface of the runway, the left main gear remained on the pavement. There were no injuries.

Rosaviatsia reported the runway was wet (3mm water on the runway), friction factor 0.54. The circumstances of the runway excursion are being investigated.

The status of Crimea and Simferopol is disputed. According to international law and United Nations the Crimea belong to the Ukraine although Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.
