The bodies of 144 victims of the Kogalymavia Airbus A321 that crashed on the Sinai Peninsula were delivered to St. Petersburg. The bodies were taken to a morgue, where relatives will come for identification procedures.
This is the first plane that brought the bodies of the victims of the air crash to Russia. Another one will land in the city on Monday night.
Psychologists of the Russian EMERCOM and ER doctors are constantly on duty near those who lost their loved ones in the air crash in Egypt.
The cause of the crash still remains a mystery. Versions vary from a technical failure of the aircraft to a terrorist attack.
A lot remains unclear. The crew did not contact flight control officers to report an emergency on board. Yet, it is too early to make any conclusions.
Meanwhile, experts are working with flight recorders of the airplane. The tragedy may change air traffic regulations in Russia, although it will not return the lives of 224 people. Russia is mourning the victims of the tragedy in Egypt. October 31 became a terrible day for the whole country.
