KUALA LUMPUR, August 5. /TASS/. Russia is not informed in full about results of technical investigation of Flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, though other countries that participate in the investigation are provided with information, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.

"Russian participants do not get all information which is distributed among several other participants of this group," Lavrov told journalists in Kuala Lumpur.

Commenting on reports that MH17 was allegedly downed by a missile manufactured in Russia, the foreign minister said it was sufficient to analyze parts of the missile that hit the plane. "It is very easy to assemble these elements and analyze them to understand where this concrete missile was manufactured and army of which country is equipped with it," he noted.

However, this was not done, he added, and participants of the investigation did not contact Russian concern Almaz-Antey that manufactures Buk missiles, one of which was used, according to Kiev and several Western countries, to down the Malaysian Boeing.
