    Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey said Thursday it has submitted to authorities a report on the air situation and airspace radar images in the area of the 2014 Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Almaz-Antey experts uncovered materials of possible interest to the deadly July 17, 2014, crash after inspecting the manufacturer's Enroute Radar Facility office archives, the company said in a statement.

    "This relates to so-called raw primary radar images of the airspace. Currently, all primary radar data stored at the Research and Production Corporation 'Lianozovo Electromechanical Plant' [part of Almaz-Antey] has been submitted to Russia's competent authorities for examination and onward submission to the Netherlands," Almaz-Antey added.

    It said the electromechanical plant's experts "replaced data carriers from the Ust-Donetsk Utes-T air route radar surveillance complex processors containing data about the traffic situation in July 2014, including July 17, 2014, in the area of the Malaysian Boeing disaster over Ukraine."

    The Lianozovo Electromechanical Plant specializes in radar and control system production.
