MUNICH (Sputnik) – Russia is ready to provide any information for a high-quality investigation into the 2014 crash of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Saturday.
Speaking at the Munich Security Conference, Medvedev called for a comprehensive investigation into the incident, stressing that Russia was just as interested in it as the countries whose citizens died in the crash.
"Russia is ready to provide all information which is needed to conduct a quality investigation," Medvedev said.
Dutch investigators said in last October's report that the airliner appeared to have been downed using a Russia-produced Buk surface-to-air missile system. It did not identify the exact location from where the missile was fired.
In a separate probe into the crash, Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey said the missile had exploded near the left side of the ill-fated aircraft. Almaz-Antey considered this to be proof that the missile could only be a missile from a Buk system launched from the region of Zaroshchenske, controlled by Kiev forces at the time of the incident.
