MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee has warned against jumping at hasty conclusions regarding the causes of the Falcon business jet’s crash at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport that killed the head of France’s oil major Total, Christophe de Margerie, a week ago.
“I must say that only forensic examination and the whole set of investigative, detective and procedural measures and the conclusions of the Inter-state Aviation Committee will enable the investigators to say what caused the crash and who was personally responsible,” IC spokesman Vladimir Markin told TASS. “In the meantime, mass media speculations and hasty conclusions on that score are devoid of any foundation and merely make a fuss over a tragedy.
Overnight to October 21, Total's Falcon business jet flying from Moscow to Paris hit a snowplough during takeoff, caught fire and crashed on the runway, killing the crew-of-three and Total's chief executive Christophe de Margerie.
