VLADIVOSTOK, August 31. /TASS/. The Russian side is ready to provide all necessary information for probing the crash of the Malaysian Boeing airliner over Ukraine in 2014 and regrets that other countries possessing important data are not acting in this way, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
The Kremlin spokesman thus commented on an appeal by the relatives of the MH17 crash victims to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Common Security Policy Federica Mogherini with a request to influence Russia, Ukraine and the United States on this issue.
"Russia has consistently spoken for and continues speaking for very close interaction during the investigation," Peskov said.
"Russia has numerously stated that it will transfer all the necessary data and expressed its regret that some sides, including those mentioned by you, did not follow this principle," the Kremlin spokesman replied to the journalist who had asked the question.
The Dutch Television and Radio Broadcasting Corporation reported on Wednesday that the relatives of the MH17 crash victims had turned to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Common Security Policy Federica Mogherini with a request to provide assistance in the probe.
In their letter, the crash victims’ relatives claim that Russia, Ukraine and the United States still have not provided "all information pertaining to the matter" and are requesting Mogherini to exert pressure on the sides so that they send, in particular, the radar data and satellite images.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 passenger airliner on a flight from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the area of hostilities between local militias and Ukrainian governmental troops in east Ukraine’s Donetsk region in July 2014. All 298 people aboard the airliner died in the air crash.
Most of the air crash’s victims were Dutch nationals.
