Kremlin states about speculations around MH17 investigation process

The investigation of the Malaysian Boeing crash circumstances in the Donetsk region in 2014 is accompanied by speculation. Press Secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov announced this, reports.

'Unfortunately, the whole story is framed by a lot of speculation and unprofessional information. It fails to provide an entire mass of information and data from the radars to a number of countries', Peskov said.

He said that the Russian side had handed over all its information on the crash.

According to him, the data is unambiguous and there are no missiles there.

'Therefore, if there was a missile, it could only be put into operation from other areas. I do not say grom where exactly, it is experts’ job to do it. It is not a hypothesis, but unambiguous information based on primary radar data', Peskov stressed.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov called for a Boeing MH17 international investigation team to take into account the data submitted two days ago by the Russian military.

'There is overwhelming evidence. One cannot make any conclusions without taking into account the latest information, which was published by our military, namely the primary radar data, which recorded all aircraft or objects that could launch or be in the air on the territory controlled by mlitants at that time', Peskov said.

He stressed that Russia stands for an open and full investigation into the circumstances of the crash.

International Commission of Inquiry of the tragedy of the Malaysian Boeing MH-17 was to present a report of the rocket launch that brought down the plane and the type of weapon on September 28.

As is known, Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines that was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was downed over Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. 298 people were aboard; none of the passengers or the crew survived. The Ukrainian investigators who also looked into the tragedy said that the reason of the crash was the missile fired from Russian-made missile launcher Buk; one of such launchers - the same one that presumably hit the airplane - was used by Russian mercenaries in Donetsk region at the time.

As reported earlier by, JIT: Buk air defense system was brought into Ukraine from Russia into Ukraine before it downed flight MH17.
