MOSCOW, August 12 /TASS/. Those who claim that fragments of the Buk anti-aircraft missile system have been found at the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 crash site will be unable to present any evidence to prove their words, Denis Pushilin, the representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the Contact Group for Ukraine settlement said on Wednesday.
"I am absolutely sure that no evidence will follow these remarks. We have already heard the United States say that Ukraine has some evidence on the Boeing-777 crash but we have not seen it. It’s going to be the same this time," Pushilin said.
He added that attempts were being made to politicize the investigation.
"The fact that they have not even collected the plane fragments properly is a source of my great concern. We can still see rather huge parts of the plane lying on the ground. We have urged them many times to come and take them away. Without them the investigation is going to be difficult," Pushilin explained adding that various political statements could be made to this effect.
"We have seen attempts to create a tribunal, which was wrong a priori," he stressed.
Earlier on Wednesday, August 12, the Dutch Safety Board and the Dutch Prosecutor’s Office published a joint press release, which said that the investigators were scrutinizing the elements, which might be related to the BUK anti-aircraft missile system. At this stage, the experts have not confirmed the existence of a link between these elements and the Boeing crash.
