MOSCOW, July 17. /TASS/. The Russian state arms producer Almaz-Antey is ready to detonate a Buk-M1 missile close to a decommissioned Boeing as an experiment, the company said on Friday.
"The management of the Almaz-Antey concern again confirms readiness for a full-size experiment of detonating a 9N314M warhead of the 9M38M1 missile close to the fuselage of a plane similar to the one that crashed in the sky above Ukraine on July 17, 2014," the company said in a press release.
Almaz-Antey said they were ready to carry out the costly experiment at one of its testing grounds and to invite foreign independent experts and representatives of the world’s leading aircraft makers as observers.
The company said the experiment was not aimed at establishing those responsible for the last year’s Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crash that left 298 people killed.
"The experiment’s purpose is to confirm the type of the missile launched [at the plane], its trajectory and conditions of its detonation close to the fuselage of the plane operating the MH17 flight," Almaz-Antey said.
