Russia positively evaluates the release in Malaysia of a book about the crash of flight MH17 in the sky over the Donbass in 2014. This was stated by the official representative of the Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.
According to her, the publication of the book of the Malaysian writer Mahadzir Ibrahim suggests that the country seeks to form its own opinion about the tragedy.
“We believe that the latter is especially important, given how one-sided and engaged in the West this tragedy is covered,” Zakharova explained.
According to her, Russian experts shared information for writing the book. Zakharova noted that the author paid much attention to various versions of the crash of the Malaysian Airlines plane and the motives that moved different countries.
“For example, the United States, as the author claims, could use the tragedy to justify the need for new sanctions against Russia,” the representative of the Foreign Ministry said.
