GILZE RIJEN, October 13. /TASS/. A missile which hit the Malaysian airliner in east Ukraine last year was launched from the area controlled by militia, Dutch Safety Board head Tjibbe Joustra said on Monday.
Joustra did not specify who had launched the missile in his report on the MH17 crash presented earlier on Tuesday.
Almaz-Antey presented on Tuesday the results of its experiments held as part of its own probe into the MH17 crash in east Ukraine last year.
Almaz-Antey specialists have come to the conclusion that the Malaysian airliner was shot down in the summer of 2014 by a missile of the older 9M38 modification whose manufacture stopped in 1986.
Almaz-Antey also confirmed the version that the fatal missile had been launched from the Zaroshchenskoye community controlled by the Ukrainian military and rejected the international commission’s version of the missile’s launch from Snezhnoye, a town that had been under militia’s control at that time.
Almaz-Antey filed a lawsuit to an EU general court in Luxembourg on lifting the sanctions slapped against the Russian defense manufacturer in late May. Almaz-Antey insists its inclusion in the sanctions list was unfounded.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 passenger airliner on a flight from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the area of hostilities between local militias and Ukrainian governmental troops in east Ukraine’s Donetsk region in July last year. All 298 people aboard the airliner died in the air crash.
Most of the air crash’s victims were Dutch nationals.
