The development of elliptic, υ2 and quadrangular, υ4, flow in the ψ2 plane is studied within the HYDrodynamics with JETs (HYDJET++) model in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions at energies of RHIC and LHC. Despite the general expectations, jet influence on the ratio of flow harmonics is shown to be significant already at intermediate transverse momenta. Hard processes lead to increase of the υ4/υ22 ratio and violation of the number-of-constituent-quark (NCQ) scaling at LHC.
