ERR's correspondent in Moscow, Anton Aleksejev, said many people have gathered at the crash site of the derailed metro, looking for relatives.

He told ETV on Tuesday evening that all trapped people have been rescued and taken to hospitals. But there are still many people waiting for their relatives and loved ones at the site, and many are in shock.

The site of the crash has been closed for journalists while investigative teams are working, but the no one is talking about a terrorist attack, with current scenarios a power cut to the tracks or construction faults of the new train.

Aleksejev said traffic jams have built up in the area, and taxi drivers have tripled their prices. The city has sent in additional buses and promised to restore the metro service today.
