    The Russian Ministry of Transport is not considering possible bans on flights to other countries except for Egypt, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said Wednesday.

    PETROZAVODSK (Sputnik) – In the beginning of November, Russia canceled all flights to Egypt after a Russian A321 plane crashed over the Sinai Peninsula killing all 224 on board.

    On Tuesday, Russia deemed the air crash was due to a homemade bomb exploding on the aircraft causing it to disintegrate in mid-air.

    “We are not reviewing this issue as of now,” Sokolov told journalists.
