MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not comment on media reports stating Turkish nationals may have been connected to the aircrash over Egypt’s Sinai last October, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
"As far as I understand, there are no concrete sources there," Peskov said. "We are not investigative authorities. This question should be addressed to investigative authorities," he added.
Several media reported earlier said that Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) allegedly uncovered a "Turkish connection" to the crash of Russian passenger airliner over Sinai last October. According to the media, Turkey’s Grey Wolves radical group may be linked to the crash. The group is believed to be linked to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization banned in Russia.
The A321 plane belonging to Russia’s air company Kogalymavia was en route from Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt to St. Petersburg in Russia (flight KGL 9268) when it crashed over the Sinai Peninsula early on October 31 last year. The plane fell near El Hasna populated locality 100km to the south of Al-Arish, the administrative center of the North Sinai Governorate (province). All the 224 people onboard, including 217 passengers and the 7-member crew, died. The passengers, most of whom were Russians, also included four Ukrainians and one citizen of Belarus.
