MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The Kremlin has declined to comment on the statement of the Egyptian authorities who so far found no evidence of a terrorist attack onboard the Russian A321 airliner that crashed over Sinai.
"No, (I cannot comment on the statement) of the Egyptian authorities," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. "I can recall the conclusion of our experts from the relevant agencies who arrived to the conclusion that it was a terrorist attack."
Egypt’s civil aviation ministry earlier reported that the investigators so far found no evidence indicating that the Russian aircraft had crashed because of a terror attack. ""The technical investigative committee has so far not found anything indicating any illegal intervention or terrorist action," the ministry said in a statement. The statement also said that Egypt had completed the preparation of a preliminary report on the results of the investigation into the crash.
Russian investigators came to the conclusion that the crash of the aircraft of Kogalymavia airlines en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St.Petersburg had been caused by a terrorist attack.
