The Russian Foreign Ministry said accusations against Russia by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in the case of the MH17 flight crash in eastern Ukraine in 2014 were ungrounded.

“The statements voiced by the JIT during a press conference on 19 June about the alleged involvement of Russian servicemen in the Malaysian Boeing MH17 crash can cause nothing but regret. Once again, absolutely unsubstantiated accusations aimed at discrediting the Russian Federation in the eyes of the international community are being brought against the Russian side,” the ministry said in a statement.
