With 'drums' growing ever-louder, Russia's "emergency situations" ministry has sent a second aircraft to evacuate citizens willing to leave war-torn Syria.

As RiaNovosti reports, "an Ilyushin-62 plane took off for Latakia. This special flight is for Russian and CIS nationals who had earlier expressed their determination to return to Moscow," emergencies ministry spokeswoman Irina Rossius said. The plane also bore humanitarian aid for, what a Russian foreign ministry spokesman said at the time was, about 30,000 other Russians that were still living across the country.

This follows a total of 180 people (according to The Telegraph), mostly women and children, returned to Moscow on-board a plane which landed in the Domodedovo airport, Moscow late on Tuesday.
