MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The investigation conducted by five countries (the Netherlands, Malaysia, Belgium, Australia and Ukraine) into the tragedy with Boeing contains so many weird aspects that there is no sense in commenting on their new initiatives, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday after his talks with OSCE’s Secretary General Lamberto Zannier.
"We have presented many times our opinion about all the weird aspects of that work, which the five countries have organized," he said. "In the very beginning Malaysia — the plane’s owner — was not invited for six months, they worked without it. ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) was not invited to the leading role, like it is done always. The aircraft debris and bodies were not evacuated, then some were evacuated and some remained there; no answers were given to Russia; they refused to talk to Almaz-Antei representatives, though the investigators say the plane was downed by a missile the company produces; then they remember about the UN Security Council as they wanted to establish a tribunal. I would not even name many and many weird aspects."
Russia "is the only country, which offered data from its satellites," he said. "The US, having this data, would not give them; the Ukrainians would not present recordings of dispatchers. All these things have been in numerous interviews, and still some noise about it does continue."
"Several days earlier they say about the missile’s debris — not parts of the warhead, but the missile itself — in the bodies. How come they are publishing it only now:"
"You know what, speaking about trials and judges, about the investigative group — God will judge that group."
