ASTANA, October 14. /TASS/. The Russian Federation’s position on the causes of a Malaysian Boeing’s crash in Ukraine last summer was comprehensively voiced by representatives of the Russian professional community, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday when asked to comment on The Netherlands’ report on the air crash.
"This position was already voiced today by our representatives, I don’t see any necessity to add anything here," Peskov told journalists.
On July 17, 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 298 people on board. Most passengers - 193 people - were Dutch nationals. The strike of a ground-to-air or air-to-air missile was named as a possible cause of the crash.
Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) earlier commented on the Dutch Safety Board’s Tuesday’s report.
Russian antiaircraft missile system manufacturer Almaz-Antey on Tuesday presented its own conclusions on the crash confirmed by large-scale modelling experiments. The experiments reportedly confirmed an earlier version that the missile that hit the plane had been launched from the territory controlled by Ukraine and not militiamen.
