22.10.2014 - Reply by Alexander Lukashevich, Spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to media question regarding the Der Spiegel publication

Question: Germany’s Der Spiegel weekly magazine has published a sensational story that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was allegedly downed by the “pro-Russian separatists,” quoting an anonymous report by the BND, the German Intelligence Service. Some politicians have immediately grasped at this theory. What does Moscow think about this ruse? Answer: Supposing that Der Spiegel’s quoting of the BND report is authentic, we cannot but feel surprised that the BND so easily discloses information whose accuracy cannot be confirmed. The Russian side has repeatedly insisted that all data relating to the tragedy should be immediately submitted to the concerned board of inquiry. This is precisely what the Russian Defence Ministry has done, submitting its factual materials to The Hague.
