During the flight the plane was shot down and crashed near Donetsk, on the territory occupied by the self-proclaimed militia Donetsk national Republic. All aboard the aircraft 298 people were killed.
In October 2015, the security Council of the Netherlands presented the results of technical investigation according to which the plane was shot down by a missile “earth — air” with a warhead 9N314M of anti-aircraft missile complex “Buk”.
The work of the international investigation team which should establish the perpetrators of the death of an airliner, is still ongoing. International expert and journalist group Bellingcat in may 2016 presented its report “Buk 3×2″: the mystery of the lost numbers”. The authors of the investigation claimed that the plane could shoot down the “Buk”, belonging to the 53rd anti-aircraft missile brigade from Kursk.
The Russian defense Ministry said that the main purpose of “falsifiable data Bellingcat” is the attempt “to prove the presence of Russian troops in the expected area of the missile that struck the Malaysian aircraft on 17 July 2014 over Ukraine”. “The latest report of the Bellingcat, however, like all previous, is also built on pseudopotto”, — stressed in the defense Ministry.
Moscow has consistently denied all allegations of interference in the conflict in the Donbas and the presence there of Russian troops.
