MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said this month he expected the international probe report to be published before the end of the year.
"We have informed victims' relatives that we will have a new meeting on September 28 where the results of the criminal investigation will be unveiled," OM spokesman Wim de Bruin told the AFP news service.
De Bruin specified the preliminary results would indicate “which weapon was used and from where it was fired.”
Flight MH17 crashed with 298 people on board on July 17, 2014, in eastern Ukraine, while en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, leaving no survivors. Kiev and independence supporters in Ukraine’s southeast have blamed each other for the downing of the MH17 plane.
Dutch investigators published a report in October 2015 claiming that the Malaysia Airlines aircraft appeared to have been downed using a Russia-produced Buk surface-to-air missile system. The report did not identify the exact location from where the missile was fired.
