Moscow surprised the Netherlands does not hurry to study Russian evidence in MH17 case

Moscow is surprised that Dutch investigators have still not accepted the Russian proposal to consider the materials available to Russia on the Malaysian Boeing crash in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Sept.10.

Moscow is surprised that Dutch investigators have still not accepted the Russian proposal to consider the materials available to Russia on the Malaysian Boeing crash in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Sept.10.

"We are certainly surprised that the Dutch side has not reacted by now to the readiness we voiced to receive Dutch experts to study the evidence we have," spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova told a briefing in Moscow.

All Russian remarks regarding the investigation into the circumstances of the Malaysian Boeing crash in Donbas "were brushed away", she said.

"Such attitude to the affair cannot but cause doubts about the expertise of investigators and, generally speaking, the quality of the investigation as a whole," Zakharova said.

"There is an impression that the Dutch Security Council and members of the joint investigative group conducting the criminal probe focused only on one theory of the incident, which they agreed upon, and are consistently reluctant to heed alternative expert opinions, no matter how sound and qualified they are," she said.
