MOSCOW, November 17 (Sputnik) — The Russian envoy to the Organization for the Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Andrei Kelin, on Monday once again urged the United States to disclose the satellite imagery that was taken over eastern Ukraine at the time of the Malaysian Boeing crash.
Speaking with Russia's Rossiya 24 TV channel, the Russian envoy said Moscow continued to "insist" that Washington "share its satellite data because there's no way they could not have seen what happened there on that day".
Kelin said Russia "urgently needs" Kiev to disclose the records of negotiations between Ukrainian air traffic controllers.
The passenger plane was reportedly blown out of the sky over the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic in July as it traveled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The Kiev government accused militias of shooting the plane down, but has not provided any evidence to support the claim.
During the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he hoped all crash data would eventually be made public.
