On Tuesday, the State Department said that the Dutch report “validated” the US theory that MH17 was downed by a surface-to-air missile from “separatist-controlled territory,” although the report gave no exact location of the missile system.

Dutch MH17 Commission Presents Crash Report
Moscow considers the US State Department's reaction to the final Dutch MH17 crash report unclear and aimed at misleading the public, the Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday during a briefing in Moscow.

“The unclear babble that we constantly read has its own simple goal, on the one hand, to confuse, and on the other, to form a relevant public opinion, which, frankly speaking, is called propaganda,” Zakharova said.

On Tuesday, the State Department spokesman Mark Toner told journalists that the Dutch report “validated” the US theory that the Malaysia-bound flight carrying nearly 300 passengers was downed “by a Buk surface-to-air missile” from “separatist-controlled territory,” although the report gave no exact location of the missile system.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donetsk en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board.

According to the Dutch Safety Board report, the aircraft crashed as a result of a ground-to-air missile explosion near the left side of the plane.
