MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman has said that no possible causes of the air crash in Egypt should be ruled out.
"For now, no possible causes should be ruled out," Peskov told journalists. "In fact, investigators are only starting their work. Each possible cause will be examined over the course of further investigation. We cannot say anything for now," he said.
"In any case, it is absolutely wrong to articulate any preliminary speculations, any opinions, any statements. We should wait for first results of the investigation," the Kremlin spokesman added but refused to forecast when the first results may appear.
He reminded that the main investigation is carried out by the country where the air crash occurred. Peskov added that Moscow highly assesses the effectiveness of Egyptian authorities in investigating the accident. "In this case, we should only wait for the results of the investigation and not speculate," he stressed.
Russian Kogalymavia’s A321 plane en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg crashed on October 31 around 30 minutes after takeoff in North Sinai, 100 kilometers to the south of Al-Arish. Flight 9268 carried 217 passengers and seven crewmembers. Egyptian authorities said no one survived in the crash. Most passengers were Russian nationals. Among the people onboard were also four Ukrainian citizens and one Belarusian national.
