Russian experts have provided the international commission investigating the July 17, 2014 Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in Ukraine with documents concerning Buk missiles that were produced in the Soviet Union, including classified information, Mikhail Malyshevsky, an advisor to the general designer of Russia's missile systems manufacturer Almaz-Antey, has said.

"The concern received a request [from the international commission] to provide additional technical characteristics in order to specify certain strategic modeling nuances," he told a press conference in Moscow on Oct. 13.

In this context Almaz-Antey general director Yan Novikov "issued an instruction, and the issue of declassifying certain materials was sorted out within the shortest possible time," he said.

"The matter is that until recently some of the materials on these missiles [Buk] remained classified," Malyshevsky said.

Copies of certain documents, including design and technical documents, were prepared, he added.
