Nothing has been confirmed as far as names go. However, a spokesperson for Lokomotiv states that their main roster plus four youth team players were on board. So I haven't heard anything to contradict Demitra being on board. However, there is some talk that Ruslan Salei, who is from Minsk, was already there waiting for the team. So he may have survived the crash.
Reports are saying that two or three people survived. If only two have survived, the player that survived was Alexander Galimov. The other survivor was a crew member. The identity or even affiliation (team or crew) of the third person, if there is a third and I hope there is, hasn't been mentioned yet.
