DONETSK, July 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic rebuffed allegations about its involvement into Thursday’s crash of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, a spokesman for the DPR prime minister Sergey Kavtaradze told reporters on Thursday.
“The [DPR] militia does not have the armament that might down the plane flying at an altitude of ten kilometres,” Kavtaradze said. “We have shoulder-carried missile launchers that might shoot down planes at an altitude of three or maximum four kilometres.”
DPR blames the Ukrainian armed forces for the Boeing crash. DPR government offers condolences over Malaysian airliner crash.
The fact that the militiamen in Ukraine’s east are not armed with the Buk (Beech) anti-aircraft missile system was made public by a spokesman of the Lugansk People’s Republic in his comment on the Ukrainian authorities’ statements about militia’s possible involvement in the Malaysian airliner crash.
