To date, the investigation is not completed, the aeronautical authorities of Russia do not have official reports and all necessary annexes that should receive the state.
Aviation authorities of the Russian Federation in the current situation is considered a breach of ethics investigation of circumstances and causes of accidents when certain issues technical issues that arise during the course of the investigation… before the end of this investigation (restrictions MAC – approx. ed.) becomes the subject of discussion, not technical specialists, experts, and released into the media”, he said.
