MOSCOW, September 10. /TASS/. Russia is surprised by the absence of reaction on the part of the Dutch experts investigating the MH17 tragedy to the invitation to visit Russia for familiarizing themselves with materials for investigation of the tragedy, Maria Zakharova, the official spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry told a news briefing on Thursday.
As she commented on the information that the Dutch investigators were planning to get more fragments, she said this was taking place just a month before the official publication of the report on investigation of the crash causes.
"And all of a sudden, it turns out the fragments they obtained earlier are not sufficient," Zakharova said.
"We are surprised by the absence of a reaction from the Dutch experts to the invitation to come to Russia and to familiarize themselves with the materials of an investigation that might shed some more light on what had happened," she said.
Along with it, she voiced doubts over the true degreed of expertise of the Dutch investigators.
