Russia still considers Egypt unsafe for Russian tourists, the renovation of equipment at airports has not significantly improved the situation, a source close to the Russian-Egyptian talks on resuming air traffic told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.
“Rest in Egypt is unsafe, and the recent attack on tourists on the Hurghada beach is proof,” – said the source.
As noted by the interlocutor of the agency, the Egyptian security forces after the terrorist attack in 2015, installed the most modern equipment at airports, but it is serviced by Egyptians.
“This makes it possible to easily bypass it, knowing with whom to” make friends “, so the technique may be up-to-date, but with the resumption of flights everything can happen again,” the source said.
July 14, two tourists from Germany were killed, two Armenian citizens, one Russian woman and a resident of the Czech Republic were injured after the attack of a man armed with a knife, who on the shore made his way from the public beach to the beach of one of the hotels in Hurghada.

The attacker was detained, the investigation of the incident is being conducted by the Egyptian prosecutor’s office. The official version of the attack has not yet been named.
