    The Russian Investigative Committee stated that the collected evidence on MH17 crash does not conform with the Dutch Safety Board's conclusions.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — All the collected evidence fully disproves the Dutch Safety Board's (DSB) arguments regarding the 2014 Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, the head of the Russian Investigative Committee's Department for Investigation of Crimes Involving the Use of Prohibited Means and Methods of Warfare, said Wednesday.

    "In my opinion, at the current stage all available conclusions of experts completely disprove all those arguments, which were presented, in particular, by the Dutch side," Alexei Pischulin said.

    Flight MH17 was downed en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donetsk on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board. The local militias and the Kiev-led forces were fighting in the region at the time of the crash, and traded blame for the incident.

    Dutch investigators published a report last October that said 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.

    However, facts obtained by Russian experts through an additional study confirm that some of the findings in the final report Dutch on the MH17 crash in Ukraine were unsubstantiated and inaccurate.

    Almaz-Antey, the Russian arms manufacturer that builds Buk missile systems, conducted a separate probe into the crash, which found that the missile that hit the plane could only have been launched by a Buk system located in the region of Zaroshchenske, controlled by Kiev forces at the time of the incident.
