MOSCOW, July 19, 17:34 /ITAR-TASS/. There are too many questions to the Ukrainian authorities about their Buk air defence systems and warplanes in the area of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 jetliner crash in Ukraine, a source in the Russian power structures said on Saturday, July 19.
“Unfortunately, instead of taking concrete measures to investigate the causes of the accident, specifically to ensure the security of evidence, the Ukrainian authorities, primarily the Security Council, are busy concocting all kinds of nonsense and insinuations, putting forth sweeping accusations and unconfirmed leads which are senseless to comment on,” the source said.
He noted that “there are already too many questions” to the Ukrainian authorities “about their Buks and warplanes in the area of the accident”.
“They must begin a large-scale investigation of all activities of the Air Force, the National Guard and other armed structures operating in Ukraine, which are countless and which are subordinated to no one. There are lots of things to investigate there,” the source said.
