In July 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in Eastern Ukraine, resulting in the deaths of all 298 people on board.
Kiev blamed the independence supporters in eastern Ukraine for shooting down the plane. However, local militia insisted that they did not possess weapons capable of bringing down an aircraft flying at 32,000 feet. Russia has repeatedly stressed the importance of a transparent international investigation into the tragedy.
One of the sources added, that the draft report includes the type of missile allegedly used to shoot down the plane and the trajectory of the missile.
Both sources said that the report also puts “some” of the blame on Malaysia airlines, which, unlike many major carriers, chose to continue flights over the conflict zone.
The Dutch Safety Board, the lead investigator into the crash, told CNN it would not comment on the information contained in a confidential report.
