The Armed Forces of Ukraine claimed that the statements of Russia's Defense Ministry on the Ukrainian belonging of the missile that downed MH17 flight over Donbas are not more than an attempt to avoid the responsibility. Bohdan Senyk, the Head of Public Relations Department of Ukraine's Armed Forces claimed this as UNN reported.

"It is nonsense. As the international investigative commission claimed that the launch system was Russian, the missile was Russian; they were deployed accompanied from the Russian territory. So, this is just another attempt to avoid the responsibility," he explained.
