MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. An international commission investigating the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine is set to visit Moscow in July to contact with Russia’s specialists, the head of Russia’s delegation at the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly and State Duma deputy Nikolai Kovalev told reporters.
"In one or two weeks an international commission that is carrying out the probe is planning to arrive in Moscow to establish a direct contact with the Russian representatives whom they want to involve in investigating this incident," Kovalev said after a meeting with the Dutch delegation held on the sidelines of the Assembly’s session in Tbilisi.
The commission will include Dutch specialists, Kovalev said. "The head of the Dutch delegation said about the visit to Moscow at the session of the Parliamentary Assembly," the MP said.
At the meeting the legislators of the Netherlands insisted on the need "to set up a tribunal to consider the issue of the downed MH17." A Dutch representative also said that "they haven’t received all the information from the Russian side."
Kovalev said that the Netherlands should have better demanded the necessary information from the United States that has failed to provide the images from its satellites.
"We agreed on cooperation and exchange of information that we have," he said, adding that the Russian side has submitted its materials to the international commission. "But there is such a feeling that our conclusions haven’t been taken into consideration, and these were the conclusions of the Buk [missile system] designers," he said.
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.
Ukraine’s authorities and the militia of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic accused each other of the tragedy. Russia’s representatives have said on many occasions they are dissatisfied with how the investigation was carried out and that the data presented by the Russian side were ignored.
