MOSCOW, October 19 (RAPSI) – Relatives of victims killed in the Kogalymavia airline’s plane crash in Egypt filed a lawsuit with the Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow seeking to receive moral damages of more than 93 billion rubles (about $1.6 billion), RAPSI learnt from the court’s press-service on Thursday.

There are 118 applicants behind the lawsuit. Defendants in the case are Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty, AerCap Holdings N.V., Kogalymavia and Triomed company.

The lawsuit has not been processed yet.

The Airbus A321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia, crashed into a mountainous area of Egypt's Sinai peninsula on October 31, 2015, leaving 224 people dead. The airliner was flying from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia.

A militant group linked to Islamic State terrorist organization, prohibited in Russia, said in a statement that it had brought down the plane in response to Russian airstrikes in Syria. As a consequence of the attack, Russia cancelled air travel and tourist visits to Egypt.
