    Airbus A321 plane crash victims' memorial tender is about to finish and memorial is planned to be installed soon in the Russian western Leningrad Region.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — The results of the contest for the best memorial for the victims of the Airbus A321 plane crash over the Sinai Peninsula is planned to be announced in the Russian western Leningrad Region, a source in regional government told RIA Novosti Friday.

    On October 31, the A321 passenger jet crashed over the Sinai en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, killing 224 people on board, including crew members. Russia’s Federal Security Service said a terrorist attack had caused the tragedy. On total 48 residents of the Leningrad region were on board.

    "Governor of Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko signed an order for carrying out an open and creative contest for the best project of memorial for the victims of the plane crash over the Sinai Peninsula," the source said without elaborating on the details.

    The source added that the results of the contest would determine the design and the location of the memorial.

    The exhibition of the projects of memorial for the A321 crash victims was launched in St. Petersburg in May.
