Malaysian Press on the Investigation of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 Crash

On August 7, 2014 Malaysian newspaper New Straits Times has published an article by Haris Hussain. The article presents the analysis of various versions why MH17 crashed.


Thank You, Malaysia!

Early on July 22 the two black boxes from the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 were handed over by Alexander Boroday, Prime Minister of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) to Colonel Mohamed Sakri of Malaysian National Security Council. As the latter stated that both devices were intact, they signed a document to confirm it. The world watched on TV how an official of the state that had suffered most as a result of the MH17 tragedy personally thanked for cooperation «Mr. Boroday» and his people who are called «pro-Russian terrorists» by Kiev and the West. For «terrorists», they behaved, indeed, surprisingly well. The Malaysian experts, as well as the experts of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe were given green light to conduct search and inquiry within the area of the plane’s crash. The remains of the passengers and the crew were passed to the Malaysians without any delay. All was done in line with the UN Security Council resolution N 2166 of July 22 which demands a comprehensive and independent investigation of the tragedy according to the principles and rules of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The need to understand others and to be understood by others is a characteristic sign of responsibility in both individuals and nations. Since his emergence on the Russian and global political scene, Vladimir Putin has never spared an opportunity to explain what his government stands for – and why it stands for what it stands in domestic and foreign policy terms.
