More then 3 years have passed since the day of the MalaysiaAirlines Boeing 777 crash in the Donbass skies. The disaster’s causes are investigated by the International Investigation Team, which includes Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine. In September 2016, it published an interim result of the international investigation – the investigators were convinced that they possessed irrefutable evidence that the airliner had been shot down by the 9M38 anti-aircraft missile of the Buk anti-aircraft missile system.
During the survey conducted among local residents of Zaroshchenskoye, from the territory of which an anti-aircraft missile that subsequently shot down the liner was launched, it was established that at the time of the disaster the village had been under the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ control.
