Russia is disappointed regarding the situation with the investigation of the crash of the MH17 airliner in eastern Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.
"Russia is disappointed that the situation regarding the Boeing crash is not changing. The conclusion of the Dutch prosecutors confirm that the case is biased and politically motivated," ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.
According to the spokeswoman, Ukraine was made a member of the JIT despite the fact that it is an interested side.
"It sounds like a cruel joke, but Ukraine was made a full-fledged member of the JIT, giving it an opportunity to falsify evidence and have the case develop to its advantage… Everything that the so-called ‘evidence base’ of the Dutch prosecution is based on was provided by the Ukrainian agencies, which are indubitably an interested side," Zakharova said.
The spokeswoman expressed hope that the situation would change after Russia provided "such indisputable evidence as primary radar data."
"And the final conclusions of the investigation, unlike the preliminary ones, will turn into an objective truth and will finally point to the real culprits in this tragedy," she concluded.
