It was also attended by representatives of several design bureaus and research institutes, including the Antonov design Bureau

The experiment was conducted in Pavlograd. There prepared everything necessary for the simulation of the explosion, which resulted in the crash of flight MN17.

However, its representatives do not articulate the conclusions to which experts have come on the results of the test.

The press release stated that the process of detonation of the warhead and the missile itself was conducted in full accordance with the planned schedule.

These data will be used to Refine the start and the trajectory of the missile, which downed the plane.
