The U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker assigned responsibility for the MH17 tragedy in Donbas to Russia, as Echo reports

“Russia is responsible for that as it intervened and occupied this part of Ukraine,” Volker noted.

He said that the air defense system which shot down the plane, came from the Russian regular military unit. It was delivered from Russia to Ukraine, used to fire a missile, which shot down a civil plane, from the Ukrainian territory and then this system was returned to Russian military unit.

“And the question on who exactly pushed the button, a Russian or Ukrainian, a Ukrainian from Donbas or n officer of Russia’s Armed Forces, is actually less important, than the fact the this Russian military equipment, transported to another sovereign state under Russia’s control, sued to launch a missile which killed all these civilians and then taken from Ukraine,” Volker said.

Earlier, the Netherlands and Australia have officially blamed Russia for MH17 tragedy. In particular, after the investigators from the Netherlands found other proves that Russian Buk missile system shot down MH17 flight plane, determining a set of unique features of this particular system.
