Investigation of MH17 crash in Ukraine violates all ICAO norms - Russian FM
All norms of the International Civil Aviation Organization /ICAO/ are being violated in the organization of investigation in the crash of Malaysia's MH17 flight in eastern Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant daily.
"Today, when the tragedy with the Malaysian Boeing is being slurred over and we are the only ones to urge to pay attention to the fact that the investigation is unduly dragged out, our Western partners keep silent or at best are saying that about one year more is needed," TASS reported his statement.
"The way the investigation is organized is a separate topic. All norms of the International Civil Aviation Organization are being violated, Ukraine's security services are directly involved in this investigation," Lavrov stressed. "A country, where a crash take place, can take part but not "call the shots" as is happening now.".
