Russia has presented to the Netherlands data on crash of the Malaysian Boeing in the maximum detailed form, the aviation authority, Rosaviatsiya, said on Feb. 18. "The radar data were presented to the Holland side in the maximum detailed form - unprocessed - which proves automatically they are original and exclusive," the authority's statement reads.
Although the format, in which the Netherlands requests data from radars on MH-17 crash would not allow seeing even 25% of the radar's primary information, Russia's aviation authority, Rosaviatsiya, said in a statement.
"The ASTERIX format, which the Netherlands requires, means the data is transferred in processed form, which, in fact, makes them secondary information, which would not allow seeing even 25% of what the primary data inside radar are demonstrating," the statement reads.
