Kremlin: No link between Russian Syrian strategy and air crash

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday that it was "inappropriate to link Russia's military strategy in Syria with the results of an investigation into an airplane crash in Egypt" over the weekend in which over 200 people died.
DEBKAfile: This comment indicates that Moscow will not initiate a counter-strike against ISIS even if the investigation attributes the air disaster’s cause to a missile or bomb. The Kremlin totally rejects the Islamic State’s claim that it downed the plane to punish Russia for its military operations in Syria.
