“We point out that the process of the [report’s] publication and the process itself is delayed on purpose by the international commission,” Lukashevich said. “The presented report does not hold any convincing information on the circumstances of the airliner’s crash and the most important expertize was not conducted.”
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 plane (Flight MH17) crash was used for pushing through the sectoral sanctions against Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“We very attentively follow the investigation of the tragic catastrophe of the Malaysian Boeing that not only claimed many lives, but also was used for purposeful exacerbating international tensions, increasing pressure on the state and pushing through the so-called sectoral sanctions against Russia,” he told a briefing.
“We strongly urge all the sides to abstain from hasty and groundless public accusations that not only undermine the international relations foundations, but also are outrageous facts of interference in an independent investigation,” the official added.
