MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. Moscow regrets that several facts submitted by Russia when investigating MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine have not been taken into account, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"The Russian side has repeatedly expressed disappointment over, let’s say, absence of required level of cooperation and involvement of Russian specialists during the investigation," Peskov said.
He added that "several facts submitted by the Russian side were most likely not taken into account for some reason." Talking about the investigation in general, Peskov noted that there were some leaks, but it was hard to tell whether those leaks were authentic.
The Kremlin spokesman advised to wait for an official report to be released. "Of course, what will be published tomorrow will be scrupulously examined by our experts and specialists," he noted.
On October 13, the Dutch Safety Board will make public its final report, summing up results of 15-month investigation work. The document is to answer the question about the reasons behind the crash on July 17, 2014 that claimed the lives of 298 people on board.
On 17 July 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger airliner on flight MH17 from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Donetsk Region in eastern Ukraine, killing all on board. Most passengers — 193 people — were Dutch nationals. The suspected cause of the crash is that the plane was hit by a surface-to-air missile. The Dutch Safety Board is conducting the investigation.
