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."
