Russia is not satisfied with the demand of Australia and the Netherlands about the admission of guilt for the collapse of the Malaysian “Boeing” in the Donbass in the summer of 2014. This statement was made by the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, reports “Interfax”.
According to her, the three parties plan to hold talks, which diplomats are trying to negotiate with may 2018. The meeting has not yet taken place due to the difference of the positions of the parties, said Zakharov.
At the same time, she added that negotiations could not take place in the coming months if the Netherlands and Australia to “renounce political ultimatums and accusations and agree on a truly substantive discussion of the real key issues related to the disaster.”
In September 2018 at a briefing representatives of the defense Ministry said the rocket, which was hit by a Malaysian “Boeing”, was produced in Dolgoprudny in the Moscow region and in 1986 was sent to a military unit 20152 Ukrainian SSR. Now it is 223 anti-aircraft missile regiment APU stationed in Stryi Lviv region. This formation, as noted in Moscow, was repeatedly brought to military operations in the Donbass. The defense Ministry stressed that these data completely refute the accusations against Russia of involvement in the crash.
