MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. The investigation into the terrorist attack that downed a Russian Airbus A321 in Egypt can take long, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
According to him, it is "inappropriate" to say the probe is proceeding slowly. "Necessary procedures connected with investigation are under way," Peskov said
"It (the probe) is absolutely not slow, investigation of such terrorist attacks can take rather a long time, but at the same time it does not mean it will be long," he told reporters.
He said the Kremlin had no information as to when the results of investigation could be made public. "But no earlier than the investigation ends," he said.
Peskov also said no information was disclosed prematurely about possible perpetrators, masterminds and those who had ordered the terrorist attack.
Kogalymavia Flight 9268 came down about half-an-hour after leaving the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for the Russian city of St. Petersburg. The disaster site is 100 kilometers south of the administrative center of North Sinai Governorate, the city of Al-Arish. All 224 aboard the plane perished.
