“Repeatedly, the Russian side expressed frustration, let’s say the lack of an adequate level of interaction and involvement of Russian experts in the investigation,” – said the representative of the Kremlin.

According to Peskov, “the number of facts that were presented to the Russian side for unknown reasons apparently not taken into account”. Thus, speaking about the investigation, he noted that there was some sort of leak, but “it’s hard to speak about authenticity of these leaks”.

Peskov urged to wait for the publication of the official report. “But, of course, that will be published tomorrow, will be carefully studied by our experts and specialists”, – assured the representative of the Kremlin.

Previously a leading Malaysian newspaper New Straits Times, quoting the Deputy head of Rosaviation Oleg Storchevoy, said that the Netherlands, coordinating a Joint investigative group in the Malaysian Boeing, ignore the “comprehensive information provided by Russia”.

“Almost two days before the publication of the report on the causes of the disaster, the Russian side is clearly not satisfied with the investigation conducted by the Netherlands”, – the newspaper, which obtained a letter sent Storchevoy to the leadership of the International civil aviation organization (ICAO).

In particular, it is noted that “of particular concern to Russia is the fact that has been ignored one of the basic principles of the investigation of air incidents – the sequence of opinions.” According to Deputy head of Department, “the investigation team instead to first consider the nature of the damage to the nose of the aircraft and fuselage, and then do a logical and final conclusions, immediately announced that the airliner was shot down using anti-aircraft missile complex “Buk”, in fact – out of the place that was specified immediately after the disaster”. As specifies the edition, “Storchevoy also noted that not have been explained methods for calculating the location, where supposedly there was a “Beech”. Besides, in his words, “the conclusions were made before mounted were the characteristics of the elements that hit the plane”.

The security Council of the Netherlands on 13 October will present their final report, which will summarize the work, which lasted 15 months. The document is intended to answer the question about the causes of the disaster that occurred on 17 July 2014 and claimed the lives of 298 people.
