The mother of an Ethiopian Airlines crash victim has revealed she had a ‘bad feeling’ and tried to talk her daughter out of taking the plane.

Ekaterina Polyakova and husband Alexander Polyakov were killed in the crash despite all the efforts of Mrs Polyakova’s mother Elena to talk them out of taking the flight.

Elena Polyakova said that she had experienced a ‘bad feeling’ and did not want her daughter and son-in-law to fly to Kenya.

She said: ‘I had a bad feeling. I tried to talk them out of this travel and of this flight in particular. But my daughter said that everything would be okay.

‘I was very worried on the eve of their flight but could do nothing to stop them.’

Both spouses worked in a Russian bank where Ekaterina was an accountant and her husband was a coder.

The couple loved to travel and share pictures and videos on Mrs Polyakova’s Instagram. Both dreamed of going to Kenya.

Ekaterina’s mother Elena Polyakova said: ‘They loved each other so much and never quarrelled. They were so bright people.’

Mrs Polyakova filmed her last video and shared it on her Instagram page minutes before being killed in the crash.
