The Russian Defense Ministry commented on the joint statement of the governments of Australia and the Netherlands that blames Russia for the collapse of the Malaysian Boeing in the East of Ukraine back in 2014. The minister said that the serial number of the missile, that allegedly shot down the Boeing, only indicates that the missile was manufactured in 1986 in the USSR, and it had a warranty period of 15 years. At the same time, the investigation seemingly ignores the information about the date and place of finding of the engine of the missile, as well as those who handed over the finding to the commission.

The unmanned aircraft »Global Hawk» belonging to the USA conducted reconnaissance flight along the south-western and southern coastline of the Crimea and the Kerch Strait. A lone US Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft flew in the same location with similar tasks — the plane scouted areas near Sevastopol and the southern coast of the Crimea. This was stated in the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Experts noted that the scouting of the military infrastructure of the Crimea is the main purpose of the flight of the US Navy aircraft.
