Russia dissatisfied with MH17 report by Dutch Safety Board

MOSCOW (AP) - A draft Dutch report into last year's crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine fails to offer a comprehensive picture, a Russian aviation official said Thursday.

The Dutch Safety Board has made the draft available to representatives of Malaysia, Ukraine, the U.S., Russia, Britain, Australia and the Netherlands prior to the release of the final report expected in October.

Oleg Storchevoi, a deputy chief of Rosaviatsiya, said that the agency questioned both the technical data and the arguments in the report. "Upon looking at it, I can say that there are more questions than answers," he said in remarks carried by Russian news agencies.

Storchevoi did not give details, but added that "we hope that our additions and commentaries will be reflected in the final report, and answers will be given to the questions we raised."

The flight heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur went down July 17 over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board.

Controversy continues over who downed the plane. Ukraine and the West suspect it was destroyed by a Russian surface-to-air missile fired by Russian soldiers or Russia-backed separatist rebels fighting in the area.

Moscow denies that. Russian officials and state media have alleged the plane was shot down by a Ukrainian missile or a warplane.

The Safety Board said last year that the Boeing 777 was likely brought down by "multiple high-energy objects," an apparent reference to fragments from a missile warhead.
