Russia Says Obama s Statement on Boeing Crash Probe Bewildering

Moscow, July 31 (QNA) – US President Barack Obama’s statement that Russia does not co-operate with international detectives probing the crash of the Malaysian Boeing airliner is bewildering, spokesman for Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said.

“First, this is Russia that was one of first countries producing its objective control data over the air crash at a recent media briefing of Russian Defense Ministry,” he said, adding that “Besides, American side has not produced any facts, except for groundless accusations and data from social networks to the public.”
He added that Russia is not a party in the air incident and could take part in the investigation without receiving an official invitation from the international committee. “This invitation was sent several days ago, after that we immediately appointed our representatives who immediately started working,” the Russia Foreign Ministry’s spokesman said.
