The operation of lifting the black boxes of the crashed A-320 continued
the whole night, RF Minister of Transport Igor Levitin said, ITAR-TASS
informs.

According to him, on May 16 the works were temporarily suspended
because of bad weather. Therefore, a decision was taken to continue
the work at night, when the wind was milder.

The Interstate Aviation Committee clarifies that decoding and
analysis of the black boxes is an important component of an air
crash investigation, since it reveals the reasons and circumstances
of the disaster. At the same time the UN Commission investigating
the case considers that it is immoral and impermissible to make any
statements about the possible reasons of the crash before the end of
the inquiry, since it contradicts the international practice of air
crash investigations.
