MOSCOW: Russia is not changing its plans for air strikes in Syria after the Kremlin said that a bomb did bring down a Russian passenger plane that crashed in Egypt on Oct. 31, the Kremlin’s spokesman said on Wednesday.

Dmitry Peskov told journalists on a conference call that the air strikes alone could not fully succeed in fighting the Islamic State and must be supported by land operations that are being conducted by the Syrian army.
