The foreign Ministry commented on the past in the Netherlands the hearing in the case of MH17

The application of the Dutch investigation that Russia is trying to "fit" the evidence in the case about the crash of MH17, the lies, said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

"The Dutch Prosecutor Thijs Berger recently announced that the model hit flight MH17 missiles. This conclusion is based on a distant similarity of the I-beam, the so-called butterfly - just two pieces of discovered 370, although the materials of the Dutch technical investigation clearly indicated that warheads of this type of such fragments constitute one quarter of the total, that is, they had to be about 100," said Zakharova, commenting on the past in the Netherlands, June 8-10, hearing on the collapse of the Malaysian Boeing.

She stressed that in the case of the aircraft not discovered any holes in the form of I-beam, and the fragments found "under suspicious circumstances".

"Finally, two years later, the prosecution recalled Russia's materials. It proves the Ukrainian origin of the rocket, which, in the opinion of the investigation team, struck flight MH17. However, prosecutors claim are unfounded - that the Russian data "has been manipulated and curve fitting". It's a lie. Another lie. After all, they had been asked to visit Russia to see firsthand the authenticity of the forms, but to the topic investigators immediately cooled. Or do not wish to come, nor sent any additional queries", - concluded the official representative of the foreign Ministry.

In 2015, field experiments of concern PVO "Almaz-Antey" has shown that the Boeing was shot down by antiaircraft missile 9M38, which are not produced in Russia since 1986 and was decommissioned Russian armed forces in 2011. Experts came to the conclusion that option defeat a more modern Boeing missile 9M38M1 excluded, since this type of ammunition leaves on the body damage not detected on the Malaysian plane. As reported by the General Director of the concern Jan Novikov, the experiments showed that in case of defeat a more modern Boeing 9M38M1 missile the plane would have had a huge number of specific damages in the form of a "butterfly" because of the 7 thousand pieces every fourth is a I-beam with the greatest kinetic energy.
