MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russia’s federal air transport agency Rosaviatsiya in its message to the Dutch Safety Board is trying to draw attention to "major discrepancies" contained in the final report on the loss of the Malaysian Airlines’ flight MH17 over Ukraine in the summer of 2014, the editor-in-chief of National Defense Magazine, Igor Korotchenko, said on Thursday.
Earlier in the day the Rosaviatsiya website published an official message from the agency’s deputy chief, Oleg Storchevoy, addressed to the head of the Dutch Safety Board, Tiebbe Joustra, saying that the report of the inquiry into the plane’s crash was incomplete, poorly founded and inauthentic.
"Storchevoy’s message is yet another attempt to draw the international community’s attention to the need for a fair and impartial investigation and for identifying the crude violations and falsehoods contained in the Dutch report," Korotchenko told TASS.
He believes the inquiry’s conclusions are wrong because the Dutch investigation was politically biased.
"From the outset they were interested not in identifying the truth, but in adjusting the conclusions to the original version, put forward by Ukraine and the West, in which they accused the local militias and Russia, allegedly standing behind them, of downing the Malyasian plane," Korotchenko said.
A Boeing-777 of the Malaysian Airlines (flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur), was lost over Ukraine on July 17, 2014. None of the 298 passengers and crew survived. An international inquiry has arrived at the conclusion that the liner was downed with a surface-to-air Buk missile, launched from an area of 320 square kilometers in eastern Ukraine. Russia’s manufacturer of the missile, Almaz-Antei, argues that the plane was attacked from the village of Zaroshchenskoye, which on the day of the disaster was under the control of Ukrainian military. Also, Russian specialists arrived at the conclusion that the missile that destroyed the plane was an older model, withdrawn from service in Russia back in 2011.
