The press briefing about the results of the preliminary investigation into the MH17 disaster took place in the Netherlands. Shortly before the briefing, Ukraine's ambassador Olexandr Gorin commented on what he heard behind the closed doors as the investigators spoke with families of the victims. Only after that, the press was allowed into the session hall. Here's Gorin's comments. 

The airliner was downed by Buk missile launcher, which came from Russia and then was evacuated back to Russia soon after this event. It was stationed on the militant-controlled territory between Snizhne and Pervomaiske towns (Donetsk region, - 112 International).

One of the questions we don’t have the answer to is exactly where Buk crossed the Ukrainian border. The investigation continues. Families of the victims wondered who used the weapon; the experts replied that they continue to sort it out. There is variety of possible answers – including the version widely discussed by the media; but until the investigation is over and the relevant materials are handed over to the court – no one answers that question.

The investigation group never specified when more information will be officially released. The most complicated part of the investigation is yet to come – they will have to find and name the people responsible for decisions, the orders, and the ones who pushed the button. Everyone hopes the answers will sound aloud.
