    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that an investigation into the Malaysian Airlines MH17 crash in 2014 in southeastern Ukraine will fail in case if all versions of the crash are not taken into account.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) An investigation into the Malaysian Airlines MH17 crash in 2014 in southeastern Ukraine will fail in case if all versions of the crash are not taken into account, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Saturday.

    “An investigation cannot be conducted by abstracting in advance from some versions. An investigation cannot be conducted relying on a paradigm, when a few minutes after a tragedy people in known countries are saying on official level that Russia is to blame [for the crash]. If an investigation is conducted relying on such a paradigm, it will be doomed to partiality, doomed to failure,”  Peskov said as broadcast on the Channel 1.

    The report released by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) on September 28 claimed that the plane had been downed by a missile fired from a Buk launcher, which had been brought from Russia and located in southeastern Ukrainian territory held by the local militias.

    Russia expressed disappointment over the report's findings it considers biased and denied any involvement in the tragedy.

    Flight MH17 crashed on July 17, 2014, in eastern Ukraine while flying en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. All 298 passengers and crew aboard the aircraft died in the incident.

      The Dutch always thought that they were the best in aviation, till the arrogance of their captain on a B747 ignored ATC and caused a massive crash in Tenerife Airport on Sunday 27 March ,1977. Who are they to judge, they are taking US orders to protect Ukraine which is the culprit.

      Its really very simple, the US has satellites overhead in Ukraine that can even read a cars number plate but refuses to release the info that can prove 100% who was behind the shooting. So all this time they have let Russia off the hook??????? bwahahahahahaha, dutch are known to be cowards who rely on Heineken but now the fools must be on marijuana, they dont have this basic simple deduction power !!

      If investigations of accidents and terror attacks on civilian transportations aren't fully meeting the outmost standards of qualifications, the governments involved in the investigations are just saying to the citizens: FO. And in what constitutional manuscript of any government is that to be found. Just sack these bastards.

      And Stoltenberg of Norway is to follow or he should be charged for illegal activities in Norway.

      I'm a Dutch citizen, but that's all. I do not agree, and so do most people who are non MSM sheep, with the outcome of this "investigation". Of course releasing the AmeriCunts satellite images are crucial in this investigation, but it was also pointed out by a high placed Finnish Judge (can't find the bookmark anymore) that the investigation should have been carried out by an unbiased international team. The Netherlands, Ukraine, Australia and Belgium signed a non-disclosure agreement with VETO power over anything that doesn't sit well with the investigation team. Talking about being unbiased .....
