MOSCOW, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s State Duma, lower house, Speaker Sergei Naryshkin has blamed Ukraine for allowing Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 civil aircraft to use airspace over the war-torn eastern area.
“We’re shocked by the fact that the Ukrainian aviation authorities allowed the civil airliner to use airspace over the territory where the Ukrainian army uses armoured vehicles, heavy artillery, warplanes and launch rocket systems against their citizens,” Naryshkin said on Friday.
“This fact can be considered criminal negligence. I don’t want to think about a premeditated act,” he said.
Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 passenger plane crashed in Ukraine 60 km from the Russian border on July 17. The airliner carried 298 passengers, including 15 crewmembers. The plane was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
