“Vladimir Vladimirovich, research was carried out on personal belongings, baggage and parts of the aircraft that crashed in Egypt on October 31. As a result of the examinations carried out on all the items I mentioned, traces of foreign-made explosive were found, ”Bortnikov reported during a meeting in the Kremlin.
“According to our specialists, an improvised explosive device with a power of up to 1 kilograms of TNT worked on board the aircraft, causing the aircraft to“ fall apart ”in the air, which explains the spread of parts of the aircraft’s fuselage at a great distance,” he said.
In response, Vladimir Putin said that the work of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria will not only continue, but also be strengthened.
"Our combat work aviation in Syria should not just be continued. It should be strengthened so that criminals understand that retaliation is inevitable, ”the president said and asked security officials to submit their proposals.
“I will check how the work is going,” he added.
