Russia handed over to the Embassy of the Netherlands in Moscow a package of information regarding disaster of Boeing MH17, but it is not known exactly what is contained within the materials. Dutch Minister of Security and Justice Ard van der Steur announced this during the debate on the case of MH17 in the Dutch parliament on Thursday, says the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, reports Ukrinform.
"Materials will be given to a Joint International Investigation Group that conducts an investigation," reads the statement.
The Minister noted that the materials were transferred to the Netherlands shortly before the parliamentary debate, so he does not know what they contained.
In particular, according to the Minister, it is not known if there is any radar data, so promised by the Russian side.
Earlier official representative of the Dutch Prosecutor General Wim De Brown said that the Russian Federation did not provide the international investigation group a data from the radar on MH17 case. It was also confirmed by the very Joint International Investigation Group.
Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines that was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was downed over Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. 298 people were aboard; none of the passengers or the crew survived.
As previously reported by the representatives of the international investigative team, the Malaysian Boeing MH17 was hit by a missile from the complex Buk, which was launched in the militants-controlled area Pervomaiske, Donetsk region.
Earlier Bellingcat experts came to the conclusion that part of the responsibility for the MH17 tragedy lies on the higher ranks of the Russian army. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu is on top of the list, along with his two deputies - Valery Gerasimov and Arkady Bahin. Russian President Vladimir Putin is also responsible for the disaster, who, under the Constitution, is the supreme commander of the Armed Forces.
The Dutch government is considering two options for bringing to justice those responsible for the destruction of Flight MH17 over Donbas in July 2014.
