MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. The Dutch Safety Board’s conclusions on the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine are "entirely wrong" and not reflecting the real situation and objective facts, the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk republic’s defense ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.
Eduard Basurin told reporters at a briefing hosted by the Donetsk news agency that the militias of the self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine could not have committed the crime.
The official stressed that the results of the experiments conducted by a Russian missile maker differed from the results of the international commission.
Basurin said the report on the results of the investigation published on Tuesday cannot be called objective and grounded. "The conclusions of the commission are very politically motivated and biased."
"All the evidence was tailored beforehand for the version and accuse the Donbas militias of involvement in the tragedy," he said.
On Tuesday, the Dutch Security Council published the results of its probe into the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine and its results contradict the findings announced by the Russian antiaircraft missile system manufacturer Almaz-Antey.
According to a report presented by Dutch Security Council Chairman Tibbe Joustra, the Malaysian airliner was hit by a missile with the 9H314M warhead. Meanwhile, Almaz-Antey showed earlier on Tuesday that the Boeing was shot down by an older missile modification with different striking elements.
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.
