    A Kogalymavia passenger aircraft, with 217 passengers and seven crew members on board, crashed in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt on Saturday, leaving no survivors.

    NOVO-OGARYOVO (Sputnik) – Search operation at the Airbus A321 crash site in the Sinai Peninsula should continue as long as needed, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday.

    “Without any doubt everything must be done in order to create an objective picture of what happened, so that we know what happened and can react accordingly,” Putin told Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov after he briefed the president upon his return from Egypt.
