Russia is ready for a substantive and professional discussion on all aspects of the ongoing international investigation into the 2014 MH17 flight crash in eastern Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Monday
Last month, Zakharova said that Russia, Australia and the Netherlands would hold a trilateral meeting to discuss the course of the investigation. Moscow insists that the meeting can be held only if no ultimatums are voiced by Amsterdam and Canberra.
Another approach is unlikely to be constructive ... As far as we understand, the investigation has not been completed yet, while our multiple questions regarding it remain without answers," Zakharova said, as quoted by the Russian Foreign Ministry.
On July 17, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in Donbas. All 298 passengers and crew on board died. Kiev accused local militias of downing the aircraft, while they said that had no weapons capable of downing such a plane.
