    President Putin promised to find those responsible for the Russian passenger plane crash in Egypt in any part of the world and exact revenge.

    The announcement was made at a meeting at which the final results of the investigation into the causes of the tragedy were officially confirmed.

    “It is not the first time Russia has faced these barbaric terrorist crimes, which often come without any visible reasons, internal or external, as was the case with terrorist act in Volgograd back in 2013. We haven't forgotten anything or anyone,” said the President.

    The President also added that the perpetrators of this attack will certainly be punished.

    “We should pursue them without any statute of limitations and should know all of them by name. We will be looking for them wherever they would try to hide. We will find them in any part of the world and punish them,” he stressed.

    On Tuesday Russia confirmed that the Airbus A321 with 224 people on board was brought down by a terrorist explosive device.

    An investigation into the crash showed  traces of an explosive material in personal items and parts of the plane.

    Russia is now offering $50mln for information on those who might have been involved in the terrorist attack on the A321.

    The aircraft went down on October 31 while en route from Egypt’s resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, leaving no survivors.

      Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, Russian bear might be angry and quite rightfully, but do not forget that Russian never did anything in haste or in a heat of revenge, they will contemplate and work methodically until the problem is solved. They would not make stupid and regrettable moves as USA and NATO would do. Something is telling me that even if these murderers would hide in Saudis Royal Palace, Russians would get them out regardless and deliver the justice.
      Few months ago I watched on You Tube a program about the worst Siberian prisons and they have them few. After seeing them I would contemplate to commit suicide rather than go there. Now I understand that Russians are really tough guys as accepting to spend 10 / 20 years in these places with such hard discipline is just unimaginable for me.

      Hope terrorist will have plenty of time to think about their deeds and just one day before their release they will all of a sudden decide to commit suicide. Yes these terrorists are really stupid idiots.

      slimyfox, Yes I agree I meant Russia will give a quick answer while actually being careful any faux-pas would be an excuse for nato to blame Russia for everything (it was already the case with those hospitals being bombed by Russia). But i'm quite confident in Putin's reaction.

      Graat, this is the best way to address this horable action.
      Hunt them down right to the source wherever it maybe.
      Great respect for the Leaders of Russia on this decision.

      It is very easy. Help the European and American people, by exposing them, to get rid of the power structure of the Vatican, the satanic-British-pedophiles monarchy, Jesuits, knights of Malta etc. ... and then the evil-doers of this world will vanish once and for all.
    • Viva Volodya !
      "the ones who hide them as well are equally responsible" - so what was that British disinfo about a Thompson pilot averting a missile at 300 metres, a very laughable occurrence that would have been kept "secret" all this time?!! What was behind that British statement?
    • Idiots!
      Year ago Mr Putin vowed to defend all Russians in Novorossiya. He vowed, then left them under Ukrops' bombardments which carried out US allowed deeds to genocide Russians.

      How much Putin's words are worth you may read from the bitter quote:

      Ministerial meeting - bit.ly/1QJr4hT
      - "Today in Vienna ended Ministerial meeting on Syria. It agreed on a list of terrorist organizations operating in Syria, which the high contracting parties agreed to regard as terrorists. The rest, apparently, will now be called opposition ones. The people they will have now cut off their heads, should feel significantly better - because from today they will be cut not by some bandits but highly spirited opposition."

      So works Kremlin. Assad was left by Russia 4 years ago. They took their advisers and forced Assad to sign Annan plan - to get the opposition time to regroup and to rearm as they were on the edge of annihilation. The same way they helped Novorossiya - not to win and not to be erased. Damn Putin... Damn "Viva Volodtzy"...

      How can you explain that the French police found that ISIS killers had more than 2 millions of Bit Coin currencies? Where this money come from? The strategy of killing ISIS fighters by bombing them is strategically wrong. Firstly, ISIS fighter does not care of being killed. They just use a simply mathematics calculations. For example in Paris the ratio was 18 French citizens killed per each ISIS fighter killed. So they will continue the suicidal method to fight back.

      The right strategy is to start killing those people of suspecting countries, using CIA methods, that are suspected of economical sponsoring of ISIS. This is to use assassins, sophisticated trained, to kill relatives of the intellectual responsible of the Russia airplane bombing including business men and their families. For example, the Colombian secret police started to kill relatives of Escobar, the Colombia drug trafficker, to get him. This was the preferred methods to kill wanted Afghan, Pakistanis, Iranian, etc. The Israel secret police are good in this. Ask the Iranians how many scientific were killed just for working in atomic issues. To say all above is not to encourage murdering but just to state the facts.

      landauroj, I think the Russians are pretty good handling these thing as well. Do you remember the accident happened in Beirut, 1986 with the kidnapped soviet diplomats? Well, yes: articles.philly.com/1986-01-15/news/26052630_1_hostage-crisis-soviet-captives-islamic-liberation-org
      My guess is, that the FSB already got some guys in their hands, who are willing to answer any questions asked. Can't blame them.

      It is getting clear now the creation of the so called “Syria Democratic Forces” (SDF) by the USA. All those rebel groups fighting against the Syria government are joining the SDF. All of these groups now joining the SDF have declared that they are fighting ISIS as well as the Syria government. These groups equalize ISIS to the Syria government. This act is nice music for the US, because this was and it is the strategy of the US in Syria, ultimately to get rid off of the Assad government and doing that getting rid off of the eternally good Russian guys and its small naval base in the Middle East.

      These groups of rebel fighters expect that once they are under the umbrella of SDF the Russian will stop bombing them. Let’s see how the Russian will react. Parallel to this, the last strategy of the US in Syria is to push for UNSC resolution in Syria to allow UN humanitarian bodies inside Syria to stop the bombing and arrange a cease of fire. This action will provide valuable time to the rebels to organize and consolidate its strategy of joining SDF and stopping the advance of the Syria army.
      Russia and Putin must be aware of this treacherous approach with long term tragic consequences to the legal Syria government

      I'd like to underline the difference between Sputnik's title, mentioning "revenge" , and the real statement by Putin, who said "We will [...] punish them", which is more pertinent to justice than to vengeance.

      Putin answer was so in manner of alpha mile. Kind of James Bondish

      Does that mean he's releasing the satellite tapes of the Pentagon on 9/11 or the radar traces of MH370?
