The statement comes after Brussels once more blamed Russia for the MH17 catastrophe, but refused to provide any evidence to support the claims.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Wednesday that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had slanted facts in order to accuse Moscow of the 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

The ministry noted that Russia, which was excluded from participating in the probe, had presented unique data on the incident, but the investigators repeatedly ignored this crucial information and “concealed it during JIT press events, which more resembled propaganda political shows”.

Despite the row, Moscow has confirmed it is ready to cooperate with the team, but stressed that the probe must be impartial and avoid politically-motivated and baseless accusations.
