Kremlin: Establishment of causes of A321 crash to take months

The causes of the Russian plane's crash in Egypt will not be determined soon

The causes of the Russian Airbus A321 plane's crash in Egypt will not be determined soon, says Russian presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov.

"It's impossible to quickly reach a definite conclusion regarding the cause of the tragedy involving the Russian plane in Egypt," Ivanov told journalists in Helsinki on Nov. 10.

"In order to determine the cause indisputably, it's necessary to put together the plane's layout, that is, all of its fragments, then they need to be transported to Cairo and laid out, and then an examination will take several months, including chemical tests, which, by the way, is already being done in Russia," Ivanov said.
