    Moscow is surprised that Washington keeps insisting Malaysia Airlines’ flight MH17 was shot down from territory controlled by eastern Ukrainian militia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The ministry said in a statement:

    “The US administration has shown such an obstinate position since the first days after the accident, despite new evidence proving the contrary.”

    The statement follows Tuesday’s remarks by US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, in which she, according to Russia’s Foreign Ministry, “again tried to categorically and groundlessly claim” that MH17 was shot down by the militia.

    “This looks especially unfounded amid the convincing press conference held on June 2 by experts from Almaz-Antey,” the ministry said.
