Earlier in the day, spokesman for the Egyptian Armed Forces Mohammad Samir confirmed to Sputnik that the wreckage of crashed EgyptAir flight MS804 had been located in the Mediterranean.
"We will carry out the survey. There should be not one, but several debris pieces, life rafts and life jackets at the site of the supposed crash. Also, there may be spots from oil and fuel spills. There is an entire set of interpretive signs which can help determine whether a catastrophe took place in one place or another," Zaichko said in an interview with the Life television channel.
Images to be obtained by Roscosmos will be sent to the Russian National Crisis Management Center for analysis, he added, noting that the first images would be taken on Friday.
