The investigators on the case about the crash Boeing over the Donbas received from the RF radar data in the international format
International joint investigation team (JIT) investigating the death of Malaysian Boeing 777 in the Donbass in June 2014, received from Russia the data from the radar at the time of the crash, this time in the required format ASTERIX, is reported on the website of the Dutch Prosecutor’s office, which is involved in the investigation.
“This week, the Russian Federation provided additional radar data for the joint investigation team (JIT), which examines flight MH17″, – is spoken in the message.
The Department clarifies that the data was received in response to the request for legal assistance from the Netherlands. “Previously obtained radar data were provided by EUROCONTROL (the European organisation for the safety of air navigation) format ASTERIX, which was adopted at the international level”, – noted in Prosecutor’s office.
“Now, additional information must be in the format of ASTERIX. The obtained information will soon be translated and analyzed,” – said in a statement.
Data from the radar was required to consider in the Kremlin. Fata insisted that their format is better
From published by the international investigation team in September 2016, the report indicated that the plane was shot down from a Buk missile system brought from Russia. The launch was carried out with agricultural fields near the village of Pervomayskaya, which was under the control of the separatists of the Donetsk people’s Republic.
Earlier, in October 2015, a similar conclusion came the security Council of the Netherlands (SBN), has declared that the Boeing 777 was shot down issued from Russia-manufactured anti-aircraft missile complex “Buk” missile 9M38 warhead 9Н314М. It was stated that the missile “earth – air” exploded less than one meter to the left of the cockpit.
The Russian foreign Ministry report criticized as “biased”. The Kremlin said,
that the findings of the investigators cannot be considered a “final truth”, and stressedthat “it is impossible to draw any conclusions without considering the latest information that was published by our military, namely the primary radar data, which recorded all aircraft or objects that could start or be in the air on the territory controlled at that time by the militia.”
The Ministry of defence said,
“presented to the world public the data of the Russian radar on the traffic situation the day of the crash on 17 July 2014,” and added: “These data it is impossible to refute – only to confirm
similar data air situation with Ukrainian radars”.
Meanwhile, in October 2016, the General public Prosecutor’s office saidthat investigators have not received primary radar data on the disaster. In may, the Ministry reported that Russia sent a new request for the data.
The investigators complained that previously received from Russia the data was not in the format ASTERIX and investigators took the time to translate and test software provided by the Russian side, which took a very long time – more than three months.
Fata insisted on the advantage of the format, used by the Russian side, and offered their help in deciphering. “Format ASTERIX claimed by the Netherlands, involves the transfer of data already in processed form and that, in fact, makes them secondary information that allows you to see even 25% of what shows primary information inside locator”, said the Federal air transport Agency.
