US State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said the United States continued to blame Russia for the crash of MH17. This was reported by the press service of the State Department.

“The United States Government has long said that Russia is without a doubt responsible for shooting down MH17,” she said.

Heather Nauert repeated previous statement by the State Department.

“The United States has complete confidence in the findings of the joint investigation team as presented today by the Dutch public prosecutor. The missile launcher used to shoot down Malaysia Airline Flight MH17 originated from the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade of the Russian Federation stationed in Kursk,” Nauert said.

“We stand by those statements,“ she noted.
