THE HAGUE, January 14. /TASS/. Dutch Safety Board has received the letter from Russia’s Rosaviatsiya aviation agency on MH17 crash but does not comment on it for now, the Board spokesperson Sara Vernooij told TASS on Thursday.
"We do not yet comment on this letter. We received it in the norming and have to study it at first," Vernooij said.
Earlier today the Russian aviation agency published an official letter of the agency’s head Oleg Storchevoy addressed to Dutch Safety Board chairman Tjibbe Joustra. In the letter, Storchevoy said that the Board’s final report on MH17 crash over east Ukraine in July 2014 was insufficient, ungrounded and inaccurate. In particular, Storchevoy noted several inconsistencies in the report about the type of missile that downed the airliner.
On July 17, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger airliner on flight MH17 from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Most passengers - 193 people - were Dutch nationals.
Dutch Safety Board said in its final report on the MH17 crash published on 13 October 2015 that the airliner was downed by a Buk surface-to-air missile. The report said that the missile was launched from an area of around 320 square kilometers in east Ukraine.
