The quality of the fuel used by the Russian airliner that crashed in Egypt on Saturday, killing all 224 people on board, met all necessary requirements, Russian Volga region transport prosecutors said on Sunday, according to RIA.

The crew of the Russian airliner also underwent medical tests recently and no problems were detected, Interfax news agency reported, citing prosecutors.

"The crew underwent a medical examination before flying to Sharm el-Sheikh, and they were declared fit to fly," said Maiya Ivanova from the Volga region transport prosecutors' office.
