MOSCOW, November 4. /TASS/. Media leaks on the crash of Russian Airbus A321 passenger jet in Egypt allegedly by sources close to investigators have a negative impact on the probe, a Russian source in the technical commission has said.

"This concerns the statements distributed both from the informed sources in Cairo and experts allegedly close to the investigation representatives," said the source in the commission that is investigating the tragedy.

The source said drawing any conclusions until the investigation ends and its results are officially announced "hampers the work" of the commission. This also "misinforms the public and the relatives of the dead who are in the most difficult situation," he said.

Russian Kogalymavia’s A321 plane, en route from Egypt’s resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, crashed on October 31 some 30 minutes after its takeoff. The debris was found 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of the administrative centre of North Sinai Governorate, the city of Al-Arish.

Flight 9268 carried 217 passengers and seven crewmembers. No one of them survived. Most passengers were Russian nationals. Among the people onboard were also four Ukrainian citizens and one Belarusian national.
