President Putin promised to find those responsible for the Russian passenger plane crash in Egypt in any part of the world and exact revenge.

The announcement was made at a meeting at which the final results of the investigation into the causes of the tragedy were officially confirmed.

“It is not the first time Russia has faced these barbaric terrorist crimes, which often come without any visible reasons, internal or external, as was the case with terrorist act in Volgograd back in 2013. We haven't forgotten anything or anyone,” said the President.

The President also added that the perpetrators of this attack will certainly be punished.

“We should pursue them without any statute of limitations and should know all of them by name. We will be looking for them wherever they would try to hide. We will find them in any part of the world and punish them,” he stressed.
