    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the statement, the decoded data from the voice recorder will not be made public in line with international and Russian regulations.

    "As a result of the preliminary analysis of flight recorders, no malfunctions of the plane's on-board systems or engines have been found…the plane was technically sound at the take-off," the IAC said in a statement.
