Lavrov refuses to apologize for MH17

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, didn’t bother to apologize for the crash of a Malaysian Boing airliner in 2014 or the death of the passengers of flight MH17, ВВС reports.

An English journalist, Stephen Sackur, suggested Lavrov apologize for what happened in the Donbas.

“Apologize for what?” Lavrov asked and added that Moscow intended to wait for the final results of the investigation as it is not yet complete.

The Minister also stated that “a hundred names” appear in the investigation of the crash of the Boing, “but they are not being accused.”

Lavrov also added that Russia published and provided a large amount of data to the investigation commission regarding the crash but has not yet received a response to it.

As the Minister noted, the data received by Ukraine and the U.S.A. and taken into consideration by the commission has not been published.

Earlier the press secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, called on the international community to wait for the final results of the investigation. “There is nothing to accept or deny. These are preliminary conclusions.” Peskov said, replying to a question by the ВВС as to whether Moscow accepts the conclusions of the international investigation team.
