“We always respect other people’s opinions, but we want to do this on the basis of reciprocity, – said Lavrov. Our opinion get no respect and even did not ask. We literally asked for it, to the concern “Almaz-Antey” – the manufacturer of missiles, which as they claim the plane was shot down – exhaustively participated in all the experiments, answered questions, gave help. None of this happened.”

The Russian foreign Minister reminded the countries that participated in the investigation, about the need to respect the UN Security Council, which in July 2014 adopted a resolution calling for an objective and impartial investigation of the disaster.
