A company that produces radiolocation radars and the Russian Defense Ministry are presenting the primary radiolocation data that was gathered in the airspace over the MH17 plane crash, which occurred on July 17, 2014 and claimed the lives of all 298 people on board.
Russia detected a Ukrainian radar near MH17 crash site proving the presence of Kiev’s air defense system, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said. Satellite data cited by the US and Ukraine could clarify the issue of the missile launch on the Malaysia Airlines aircraft from Kiev-held territory, Igor Konashenkov said.
Russian radar has not detected third-party objects except for two civilian aircraft around MH17 crash site that could have caused its destruction, Almaz-Antey said. Russian radars would have detected a missile that hit Malaysia Airlines plane if it had been launched from the area controlled by the Donbass militia, Konashenkov said. The Russian Defense Minitry said that the MH17 crash investigation is on the wrong track because the missile type and lauinch point are identified incorrectly.
