MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed on July 17, 2014 with 298 people on board in eastern Ukraine after being shot down en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, leaving no survivors. Most of the victims were Dutch citizens, and the Dutch Safety Board is heading the international investigation into the incident.
"The agenda-driving and biased approach to Russia can be seen not only at the level of foreign state agencies, it very boldly and almost openly predominates in a host of foreign media outlets, which smacks of work [being done] to order. This entire situation makes us doubt that the joint investigation team is interested in principle in seeking the truth," Zakharova said at a briefing.
According to Zakharova, open politicization of the process is far removed from the way a true investigation should be conducted.
"We will not tolerate the selective approach being applied by the joint investigation team: this is interesting, that isn't, we don't even notice the other," the spokeswoman stressed.
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 was unable to identify the exact location from where the missile was fired.
However, new 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.
