Putin's Press Secretary Peskov Calls Findings Of Investigation Into Crash Of Malaysian Airlines Plane "Preliminary"

Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for Russian President Vladimir Putin, emphasizes that the results of the investigation into the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 downed in Donbas in July 2014 are preliminary.

He gave the position in an interview with BBC, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"First of all, we have to admit these are preliminary results. We understand from the statements that were made today that the investigation will continue till 2018. So, we still have to wait until the final verdict. There are still lots of unclear things, there are still lots of contradictions. And we all have to find answers to those contradictions," said Peskov.

According to the press secretary for the president of the Russian Federation, from the very beginning Russia expressed its will to be "a full time participant in that investigative team." Peskov says Russia regrets it was "refused to take part in that investigation."

When asked by a correspondent of BBC whether Russia accepted the findings of the investigation, Peskov reiterated those were preliminary findings.

"There is nothing to accept or to deny. First of all, I repeat these are preliminary statements and we still have to investigate, we still have to continue the investigation… We cannot accept as the final truth what they say. And I can bet you have not seen proofs of those statements. We have to be very precise. It is a very serious tragedy," he said.

According to him, details are missing to enable one to state that the weapon "came from that part, from this direction or from that direction."
