MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. The Chairman of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky considers openly cynical appeals of the EU summit on Russia to take responsibility for the catastrophe Malaysian Boeing over the Donbas in 2014.
“Calls of the EU summit on Russia to take responsibility for the downed Malaysian Boeing and to cooperate with the investigation – frankly cynical. In this issue, our European partners continue to hear only itself, and, in fact, to cover the Ukrainian authorities”, – he said to journalists on Friday.
Slutsky has reminded that “Russia has repeatedly offered assistance in the investigation.” “We gave the expert the materials of concern “Almaz-Antey”. However, were not taken into account neither these findings nor the Russian representatives were not included in the work of the Special investigative group,” he said. This Slutsky has noticed that “any liability of Kiev for failing to close the sky over a war zone is not recognized, and the question is simply ignored”
“Again the same handwriting as in the case Skipala – Russia is guilty, because the guilty, and no evidence is not needed here. With this approach we will come to a complete scrapping of international law”, concluded with regret that the head of the Committee.
On the first day of the EU summit in Brussels, EU leaders urged Russia to cooperate in the investigation of the crash Boeing in Ukraine in July 2014. As noted in the statement, “the EU summit urges Russia to accept their responsibility.”
