NALCHIK, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Thursday’s crash of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 jet in eastern Ukraine lies at the Ukrainian government’s door, Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of the upper house of Russian parliament said Friday as he was visiting the North Caucasian city of Nalchik,

Boeing 777 crashed near the township of Grabovo in the much-troubled eastern Donetsk region while performing a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. All the 298 persons aboard died.

“The death of about 300 people fully lies at the Ukrainian government’s door,” Matviyenko said. The incumbent authorities in Kiev “are like thimble-riggers - they say one thing and do a totally opposite thing.”

“Independent investigation will give all the necessary assessments and we hope it will cool off the hotheads in Kiev and will bring them back to senses and will show them that it’s impossible to continue the combat actions because a full-blown civil war will be the next phase,” she said.
