MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. The Russian Transport Ministry has made a request to the Tunisian authorities in order to enhance security for the Russian air flights, Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov told Moskva news agency on Friday.
"There are certain countries of higher risks, including Tunis," Okulov said. "We have only charter flights there, so we made a request to the Tunisian authorities to introduce extra security measures for Russia's air flights."
The ministry will send such requests to other higher risk countries, he added.
On October 31 a plane belonging to Russia's Kogalymavia airlines was en route from Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt to St. Petersburg in Russia when it crashed over the Sinai Peninsula. All the 224 people onboard, including 217 passengers and seven crew members, perished.
The A321 crash was a terror attack with the explosion of a homemade bomb with a yield of up to one kilogram TNT.
