MH17 investigation team “prejudiced”- Sergey Lavrov

The Russian Foreign Minister told a Singapore-based television channel that Malaysia is the only “sincerely interested” country when it comes to investigating the shooting down of MH17

Members of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) for the MH17 crash, especially from Western countries, “seem to be quite, quite prejudiced,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Channel News Asia.

 “The investigation that was started was not independent, was not comprehensive, and not truly international,” Lavrov told the Singapore-based news channel. “Malaysia is the most sincerely-interested country in establishing the truth… and I don’t see any political motivation in what Malaysia is trying to do.”

Last week, Russia vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution on the establishment of an international criminal tribunal in connection with the shooting down of MH17 in July 2014. Moscow has maintained that the idea of the tribunal was premature, ill-defined and unfounded.
