11.06.2020, Moscow.

The investigation conducted in the Netherlands into the crash of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 is trying to deflect any suspicions away from Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on June 11.

Zakharova said that the investigation is being conducted taking place against the background of accusations against Russia of unscrupulous practice  and attempts to bring the case to a deadlock. At the same time, Dutch prosecutors are trying their best to deflect suspicions away from Ukraine.

In particular, it is alleged that Ukrainian surface-to-air missile systems had not operated on the day of the tragedy. However, it is widely known that there are published photos showing Ukrainian Buk surface-to-air missile systems placed in a state of high combat readinessю Moreover, it is known that they were in close proximity to the scene of the accident.

The hearings on the case were held during June 8-10 in the Netherlands. Earlier it was noted in Moscow that they provided the investigators with radar data and documents confirming that the missile that hit Boeing was fired from the territory controlled by Kiev.
