    Russian aviation experts are drafting a security report in Egyptian airports after returning from inspections conducted in Cairo, the Russian Transport Ministry said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian experts inspected security measures at Cairo International Airport's second terminal in a three-day visit late last month.

    "Russian experts have returned from Cairo. A report is currently being prepared on the results of the inspection," a ministry spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

    Russia suspended flights to and from Egypt after a St. Petersburg-bound Airbus A321 crashed in the Sinai Peninsula soon after taking off from Sharm El-Sheikh on October 31, 2015, killing all 224 people aboard.
