On October 31, an Airbus A321 passenger aircraft operated by the Russian airline Kogalymavia under the brand name of Metrojet crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. All 224 people on board were killed.
Russia has received a lot letters from French people condemning Charlie Hebdo cartoons on the A321 crash in the Sinai Peninsula, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
"We can hardly say more than we said a few days ago. We receive a lot of letters from the French. We receive a lot of letters from the French, our embassy in France has received a lot of letters from ordinary French people, Parisians, in which people say that they are ashamed of their fellow citizens," Peskov told reporters, commenting on a new A321 crash cartoon published by the notorious magazine in Tuesday's issue.
One of the pictures shows an Islamic State jihadist militant with plane debris falling around him. The caption reads "Islamic State: Russian Aviation intensifies its bombing campaign."
In the second drawing, a skull in sunglasses, lying on the ground amid body parts and the plane’s debris, speaks about the dangers of flying with the Russian airline. The caption says: "The dangers of a Russian budget airline. I should have taken Air Cocaine."
