MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. The draft resolution of the UN Security Council on establishing an international tribunal to investigate the MH17 crash allows for many interpretations, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law told the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Wednesday.
"We outlined our position from the very beginning in detail, honestly and openly," Konstantin Dolgov said. "First of all, there is the UN Security Council's Resolution 2166, which postulates the need to carry out an effective and fair investigation of this incident and bring to justice all those responsible. "Russia has urged its Western colleagues for a long time, including the permanent members of the UN Security Council, not to forget about this resolution, to abide by it, to conduct the investigation, which has not been completed to date, more effectively and dynamically," the Russian diplomat said.
"We have no reasons to say that it [the investigation] is nearing completion, we saw only preliminary outlines triggering justified and very serious questions on the part of Russian experts, which we handed over to the Netherlands, Malaysia and other interested countries," Dolgov added. "We are pursuing an open policy. There have been no answers to these questions. No one has coordinated this draft resolution with us, the idea was put forward quickly enough for the resolution to be passed within days. This is not the way the issue should be addressed. They actually forgot about the previous resolution, they did not respond to our calls to work on Resolution 2166, and now they want to force through the far-reaching document, which, if passed, may be subject to different interpretations."
"The experience of international tribunals is more than ambiguous. Let’s recall the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. A lot has been said recently about this tribunal, the way it works, its politicized and blatantly one-sided nature," Dolgov said.
