The Kremlin warns against linking the A321 passenger jet crash in Egypt with Russia’s operation in Syria, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has told the media.

"Hypothetic insinuations on that score are inappropriate. Besides, these are absolutely different issues. There is no point in linking them," Peskov said, when asked if progress in Russia’s operation in Syria might be affected if it was confirmed the plane had fallen victim to a terrorist attack.

He also pointed out that for now there was not the slightest evidence indicating there was an act of terror.
