Russia has explained its reasons for doubting the objectivity, reliability, and impartiality of the conclusions reached by the Joint Investigation Team. Moscow also urged the Hague to study carefully the radar data that Russia has recently handed over to the investigation team.

Russian media quoted Jones-Bos as saying after the meeting that she would discuss Russia’s concerns with her government but gave no further details.

On September 28th, international investigators announced that MH17 had been hit by an anti-aircraft Buk missile, provided by Russia, from the village of Pervomaysk, which was controlled by pro-Russian insurgents.
