MH17: The view from Moscow

People lay flowers at the Dutch embassy in Moscow on Friday to mark the anniversary of the downing of Malaysian airlines flight MH17.

As inquiries continue so do recriminations. Pro-Russian separatists are believed to have shot down the plane. Russia squarely denies this.

The Deputy Head of the Russian Aviation authority Oleg Storchevoy went further telling a press conference on Thursday:

“The Ukrainian side simply did not want to lose money from closing the air space. 298 people fell victim to this greediness and negligence of the norms of safety.”

A final report by the Dutch Safety Board into the cause of the crash is scheduled to be released in October.
