MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov has accused Kiev of inaction to form an international commission to investigate the Malaysian Boeing 777 crash and said there were a number of questions Moscow expected Kiev to answer.
Antonov said in an interview to Russia 24 television "it caused surprise and even bitterness that some people abroad tried to play on the situation".
"Already today they try to determine who is guilty of the situation we hear it is the Russian Federation or its armed forces, or militiamen in the southeast of Ukraine."
"It seems to be a continuation of the information war unleashed against the RF already for many months, and we feel consequences of the war," Antonov said.
"We would like today to ask Ukraine's armed forces ten questions. Answers to the questions would allow all of us, not only in Russia, but in Western states and the east, in Asia, to try to find an answer to the main questions: what happened in the sky over Ukraine and what must be done to prevent it from recurring."
Ukraine must report about details of the use of its Buk air defence systems on the day of the Boeing crash and explain reasons of its inaction to form an international commission to investigate the causes of the crash, he noted.
The Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, which was on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in the Donetsk region on Thursday evening. All the 298 people aboard died.
