MOSCOW, June 2. /TASS/. Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey said on Tuesday that materials it presented during a news conference in Moscow on the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine had been provided by the Dutch side leading the probe into the July 17 crash.
The company's chief executive, Yan Novikov, said: "The content presented by the concern at today’s news conference included only materials from a preliminary report issued by the commission investigating the crash of the Malaysian Boeing airliner," Yan Novikov said.
Allegations that the Almaz-Antey used forged photographs of the MH17 crash "have nothing to do with reality", Novikov said, noting that the concern was ready to make materials of its presentation accessible to everyone casting doubts on the investigation’s results.
He added also it was untrue that the type of Russian-made surface-to-air missiles the Ukrainian side blamed for the shooting down of the plane had been on display at military parades in recent years.
"The parades feature the most advanced defense missile systems Buk M-2 with the 9M317 missiles," Novikov said.
