Russia: Rosaviatsia deputy head expresses 'regret' over MH17 crash investigation

Russian Federation, Moscow
February 9, 2016 at 12:04 GMT +00:00 · Published

Oleg Storchevoi, Deputy Head of Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) expressed his regret that the Dutch-led investigation into the MH17 crash was held "behind closed-doors," was not "entirely objective" and did not take into account "important information" that his organisation had provided, speaking from Moscow on Tuesday.

He also re-asserted that fact that the Ministry of Defence briefing that was held almost immediately after the crash "showed the world" what information the Russian side had. "In particular, we presented our Russian satellite images of the situation that took place in Ukraine before the tragedy and on the day of the tragedy," Storchevoi explained. He also stressed that this information is still publiclly available and has already been provided to the investigative committee.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam when it was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014 killing all 298 on board.
