In the state Duma commented on the accusations of the Netherlands against Russia on MH17

A member of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Anton Morozov called the accusations of the Netherlands against Russia in connection with the crash of flight MH17 false, politicized and which has no legal prospects, noting that Russia does not have the capacity to run "even theoretically" missiles from the territory of Ukraine.

Earlier, the government of the Netherlands said that the state will file a lawsuit against Russia with the European court of human rights (ECHR) in connection with the crash of flight MH17.

Malaysian Boeing flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur flight MH17, crashed on July 17, 2014 under Donetsk. On Board were 298 people, they all died. Kiev has blamed the disaster militias, those announced that did not have the means that would shoot down aircraft at this altitude.

"The Russian side does not have the capacity to run even theoretically missiles from the territory of Ukraine, therefore, we believe these charges are false, politicized and which has no legal prospects," - said Morozov told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, a joint investigation group (SSG) under the leadership of the Prosecutor General of the Netherlands without the participation of Russia are investigating the circumstances of the crash, presented the intermediate results. The investigation claims that Boeing was shot down by anti-aircraft missile complex "Buk", belonging to the 53rd antiaircraft missile brigade of the armed forces of the Kursk.

As stated by RIA Novosti Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Nikolai Vinnichenko, the Russian side handed over to the Netherlands not only the data of the Russian radars, but also documentation showing that the missile SAM "Buk" that struck the Boeing belonged to Ukraine, and she was fired from the territory controlled by Kiev, but this information, the investigators ignored. In the first hearing, the prosecution acknowledged that it has received and is studying the data of the Russian Prosecutor's office.

"We see this as incorrect from a legal point of view the action since it is obvious that you first need to prosecute the authorities of the state, which launched the war zone civilian aircraft," - said Morozov.

The Deputy noted that Kiev had to close the sky over the territory, where there are fights. "First of all, I think the investigation was to explore how there's this Board in General, and the second question is to examine what kind of missile it was defeated," - said the Deputy.

Frost called this situation "the long-running provocative project against Russia."

According to protection, the authorities of the Netherlands separately from the trial on the crash are investigating why it wasn't closed the sky over a conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine.
