Alexsandr Borodai, PM of the Donetsk People’s Republic, at a press briefing following the handover of the black boxes from downed Malaysian jetliner MH17 has continued to shift blame toward Kiev for the attack which killed all 298 people aboard.
Borodai says Kiev is not interested in an objective investigation of flight MH17 and had tried to instill fear into the foreign experts investigating the scene.
Borodai denies the rebels had any responsibility for the tragedy and has stated that the Ukrainians had both the motivation and technical means to shoot down the Malaysian jetliner.
Borodai also noted that the bodies of all 298 people killed in the crash are currently on a train in Donetsk en route to Karkiv after leaving Torez earlier in the day.
The leader of the Malaysian delegation showed great gratitude following the return of the black boxes and thanked Mr. Borodai for his cooperation in the matter.
“We would like to convey our sincere appreciation to His Excellency, Mr. Borodai, for obeying our request,” said the speaker for the delegation mentioning also that the Government of Malaysia is not interested in a “blame game”, only in the safe return of “the rightful property of Malaysia.”
