Narrative:
Air France flight AF-1645 from Moscow to Paris was involved in in near midair collision over Russia.
The Airbus A319 took off from runway 25L at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport at 15:03 hours local time.
The flight climbed on a westerly heading. About 15:16, while climbing through an altitude of 8000 m, a large Tupolev Tu-95 four-engine turboprop strategic bomber descended of the A319, passing overhead at a separation of about 100 m.
At the time, the Air France flight was being handed over to another air traffic controller, according to Russian media.
