War Crime: Malaysian PM Says Attempts to Pin MH17 Downing on Russia Lack Proof

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad has expressed his dissatisfaction over the fact that the investigation into the 2014 crash of the Malaysia  Airlines-operated Boeing in Ukraine was not conducted in an impartial manner with Kuala Lumpur’s participation but was rather focused  on simply pinning the blame on Russia for political reasons.

Speaking at a press conference at the Japanese Foreign Correspondents’ Club on Thursday, the prime minister also noted that Malaysia  should be allowed to participate in examining the plane’s flight recorder.

“For some reasons, Malaysia was not allowed to check the black box to see what happened. We don’t know why we are excluded from the  examination but from the very beginning, we see too much politics in it and the idea was not to find out how this happened but seems to be  concentrated on trying to pin it to the Russians. This is not a neutral kind of examination”, the prime minister said, as quoted by the  Malaysian National News Agency.

The prime minister pointed out that he did not believe that the missile, which is believed to have downed the plane, had been launched by  such a “disciplined” party as Russia, and stressed that there was not enough evidence to state that Russia was indeed responsible for the  crash.

“They are accusing Russia but where is the evidence? We know the missile that brought down the plane is a Russian type missile, but it  could also be made in Ukraine. You need strong evidence to show it was fired by the Russians, it could be by the rebels in Ukraine, it could  be Ukrainian government because they too have the same missile”, Mahathir said.

The Boeing, which was on its MH17 flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed near the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine on 17 July  2014. All 298 people, mostly from the Netherlands, who were on board the plane were killed.
