    The conclusions of the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) on the MH17 crash has not changed after the disclosure of the radar data by the Russian arms maker Almaz-Antey showing that there were no third-party objects in the Ukrainian airspace that could have downed the Malaysian airliner, Dutch Safety Board spokeswoman Sara Vernooij told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The so-called initial radar images of the Ukrainian airspace on the day the Malaysia Airlines flight crashed were submitted to the Russian Defense Ministry last week by Almaz-Antey, whose subsidiary produces and manages civil radars. The concern also builds Buk air defense systems which missile, according to the Dutch Safety Board report, downed the plane.

    "The Dutch Safety Board has presented its final report concerning the crash of flight MH17 on 13 October 2015. Since the presentation, we have followed all publicity about the investigation, but up until this day there is no issued information that affect the conclusions of our final report," Vernooij said.

    Almaz-Antey will hand over information on the situation in the area of the MH17 crash to the Netherlands, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said on Monday.

    The Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight 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 Donbass militia have blamed each other for the downing of the plane.

    Most of the victims were Dutch citizens, and the DSB was chosen to head the international investigation into the incident.

      The dutch need more courage than heineken gives them, the US has overhead satellite pics that they can demand. Perhaps the CIA has been mixing too many seeds with the marijuana buds they have been smoking, the dutch are left with no courage at all.

      Even if there would appear pictures showing Ukr. right sector firing the missile, the dutch poodle "safety board" still would keep the report unchanged. The fact that Ukraine itself is a member of the investigation team tells everything of the nature of this investigation. Only the relatives of the victims should go all the way in order to find out the truth, which is being silenced by their own government at present.

      If Russia can't handle a small -,cowardly -, lying -, lbgt state like the Netherlands they might as well pack it in right now.
      Russia has to put sanctions on them for withholding evidence.

      Of course not, the results of the probe were determined before the investigation even started. These people are evil.

      Why bother now? Who in their right mind would think that a Russophobic NATO country and a staunch US vassal would come up with anything else but "Russia (or Putin) did it"????

      Russia and the Novorossiyans should from the start have demanded an impartial investigation from a neutral country and UN could have been entrusted (under supervision) to guard the place until such an investigation was established.

      Instead Russia went out of it´s way to appease USA,NATO, the English, the Dutch and their Ukronazi clients supposing that this would somehow make them less biased. Russia should stop fantasizing about having a normal relationship on equal terms with the west. It´s not going to happen. As soon as their 40-45 year amnesia kicks in their back with yet another tiresome "Drang nach osten" again, hoping that this time they will come out victorious but to no avail and everybody's loss.

      Mikhas, did Lavrov participate in this agreement?

      The champion appeasers of history: Chamberlain, Stalin (prior to the Nazi invasion). Will Lavrov join them?
