"Chief Judge Hendrik Stinheys said Girkin's recent high-profile interview will be added to the case materials", reads the message.
The interview with the ex-leader of Russian mercenaries was released by Gordon on May 18.
In the three-hours-long conversation, Girkin mentioned a number of already known episodes, and also revealed some new details.
Specifically, the ex-commander of Russian mercenaries in Donbas admitted "certain responsibility" for the disaster and didn't rule out he could stand before trial for this crime. At the same time, he claimed that the militant gangs that he controlled did not shoot down the aircraft; he himself was sure it was Ukraine's fault in the tragedy. That generally reflects the official stance of the Russian government.
