NEW YORK, July 23, 2:06 /ITAR-TASS/. The crash of a Malaysian Boeing in eastern Ukraine is “a wake-up call for everybody” to stop inciting violence in that country, Russian Permanent Representative at the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Tuesday.
“I agree it’s a game-changer,” he told CNN. “It should serve as a wake-up call for everybody to stop instigating violence, stop supporting the Ukrainian government in its military campaign against civilians.”
The Russian EU ambassador said it was a meanly thing to try to make political profits on the tragedy and foretell the results of the investigation. Nobody, in his words, had produced any convincing evidence that pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine, or indeed Russia, had a role in the attack.
“In the meantime, the United States government has said that it has mounting evidence pointing to what they - to those whom they call rebels or separatists, but have yet to produce any piece, any tangible piece of evidence,” he said, adding that Ukraine was “producing fake evidence.”
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 airliner (flight MH17) en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in the area of combat operations between local militias and Ukrainian governmental troops in east Ukraine’s Donetsk region on Thursday, July 17. All 298 people aboard the plane, including 193 Dutch nationals, died in the crash.
