MOSCOW, October 3. /TASS/. Russia hopes that the Joint Investigation Team probing the loss of Flight MH17 over Donbass will assess Kiev’s failure to close the country’s airspace. A statement to that effect has been made to the Dutch ambassador in Moscow, Regina Jones-Bos on Monday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The hope was expressed the JIT, acting within its competence, would make a qualified assessment of Ukraine’s failure to close the airspace as one of the main causes of the tragedy," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov notified Dutch Ambassador to Moscow Regina Jones-Bos that the preliminary results of the investigation into the MH17 crash cannot be recognized as satisfactory:
"The ambassador was informed about the serious reasons why the preliminary results of the criminal investigation into the MH17 crash over Ukraine on July 17, 2014 that were made public on September 28 cannot be recognized by Russia as satisfactory," the Foreign Ministry said.
Apart from that, it was brought to the ambassador’s attention that it was "inadmissible to ignore major objective information provided by the Russia side as it undermines cooperation between Russian experts and the investigators and discredits efforts aimed at establishing the real picture of the tragedy."
