Was the resumption of Russian flights connected to Dabaa, after all?

Was the resumption of Russian flights to Egypt connected to Dabaa, after all? Al Shorouk’s Emad El Din Hussein doesn’t seem to buy it, pointing out that the contracts for the Dabaa plant were inked last week but Russia still hasn’t allowed charter flights to return to tourist destinations. He reaches the conclusion that Russia is making demands that would threaten Egypt’s sovereignty in one way or another — and that we’re refusing their terms. Al Masry Al Youm’s Abbas El Tarabily is of the same mind, saying that the reason for Russia’s refusal to allow flights to resume normally remains a mystery. Meanwhile, Karim Abdel Salam takes to the pages of Youm7 to indirectly claim that this is all part of a politically-motivated economic blockade imposed by Russia and the UK, among other countries.
