‘ Report on MH17 Delayed By Pressure From Some Western Powers That Lead to Sanctions’

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – September 11 It seems that the international commission on the investigation into the crash of the Malaysian airliner crash in Ukraine less than two month ago intentionally drags out the investigation as a result of pressure from some Western powers, Alexander Lukashevich, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said on Thursday Itar-Tass reported. 

MH17 Report Delayed by Western Powers to Allow Greater Sanctions 1061016

We point out that the process of the [report’s] publication and the process itself is delayed on purpose by the international commission,” Lukashevich said. “The presented report does not hold any convincing information on the circumstances of the airliner’s crash and the most important expertize was not conducted.”

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 plane (Flight MH17) crash was used for pushing through the sectoral sanctions against Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich said on Thursday.

We very attentively follow the investigation of the tragic catastrophe of the Malaysian Boeing that not only claimed many lives, but also was used for purposeful exacerbating international tensions, increasing pressure on the state and pushing through the so-called sectoral sanctions against Russia,” he told a briefing.

We strongly urge all the sides to abstain from hasty and groundless public accusations that not only undermine the international relations foundations, but also are outrageous facts of interference in an independent investigation,” the official added.

' Malaysian Airlines Site of Crash Was Within Zone of Two Operational S200 Anti-Aircraft Systems '

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – July 18  – The stretch of the flight route of the Boeing 777 airliner of Malaysia Airlines and the site of its crash were within the zone of operation of two Ukrainian batteries of the S-200 long-range anti-aircraft missile system and three squadrons of the Buk-M1 medium-range anti-aircraft missile system, the press service of the Russian Defence Ministry told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

“Russian radio-technical facilities during July 17 were recording the work of the 9s18 Kupol radar station of the Buk-M1 squadron, stationed in the area of the Styla settlement (30 km south of Donetsk),” the ministry added.

 

The ministry stressed that technical features of the Buk-M1 air defense system allow it to exchange information between the squadrons of one battalion. “Thus, the launch of the missiles could also be made from all the squadrons, located in the Avdeyevka settlement (8 km north of Donetsk) or in Gruzsko-Zaryanskoye (25 km east of Donetsk),” Russian Defense Ministry stressed.

MH370: `Two New Objects maybe Related to `Malaysian Boeing 777-200 – Reports ‘

#AceWorldNews – SYDNEY – March 24. – Two new objects that may be related to the missing Malaysian Boeing 777-200 have been spotted today by specialists from the Australian plane that participates in the search and rescue operation, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said.

Abbott noted that the objects are located in the Indian Ocean, about 2,500 kilometres off Australia‘s cost. One of the objects, of green or grey color, has the circular shape, and another one, orange in color, is rectangular. The ship of the Australian Naval Forces “Success” has been sent to the site where the objects had been spotted, Itar-Tass

Australia decided to expand the search area in the Indian Ocean from 23,000 to 68,000 kilometres.

Possible debris of missing Boeing

Earlier today, Chinese air-planes have detected in the Indian Ocean several objects that may be debris of missing Malaysian Boeing, Chinese news agency Xinhua reported on Monday.

It was reported earlier that two Ilyushin Il-76 airplanes of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force joined the search operation in the southern part of the Indian Ocean on Monday.

Thus, ten air-planes from Australia, New Zealand, the United States, China and Japan are participating in the search operation on Monday. China has also dispatched research icebreaker Xue Long (Snow Dragon) to search the missing airliner.

Chinese air-planes flew to join the search operation, after the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) reported that it had detected two objects drifting around 2,500 kilometres south-west of Perth, Australia.

Later, Chinese and French authorities also stated that some suspicious objects were spotted in the Indian Ocean.

Chinese satellites have detected them in the southern corridor of the search area in the Indian Ocean around 120 kilometres away from the place, where other two objects, presumably the plane’s debris, were spotted, according to AMSA.

MH370: ` Object Spotted by Chinese Satellite looks more like Airliner’s Wing: Australian expert’

#AceWorldNews – CANBERRA – March 22 (Xinhua) — The object spotted by a Chinese satellite may be a wing of an airliner, John Blaxland, a senior fellow from Australian National University (ANU) said in a telephone interview with Xinhua on Saturday.

MH370Dr. Blaxland, from ANU’s Strategic and Defense Studies Center, said if the measurements of 22 meters long and 13 meters wide are correct, they are more consistent with a wing of a Boeing 777 airliner.

Asked about whether the newly spotted object would be the one spotted in an earlier satellite image, Blaxland said they don’t seem to be the same object.

“It’s similar shaped, but if the measurements (are correct), then this is slightly wider,” he said.

He called it a significant finding, because that would not be a container.

Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) earlier released satellite photos showing an object of 24 meters long, which becomes the “best lead” so far to find the missing Malaysian Airline MH370.

The Chinese government released a satellite photo taken on March 18. The object is said to be 120 km west to the object spotted by American satellite on March 16 which has formed the basis for the current search operation coordinated by Australia.

Blaxland said if that is the case, then the two objects are ” highly unlikely” to be the same object or the two wings of the same plane because the ocean current is from west to east.

But in a later email reply to Xinhua, Blaxland said this picture suggests the new imagery is not to the west but in the south of the area currently being patrolled.

“That changes things as it is quite possible that the currents would move, in a swirling pattern, to move the object further south in to the area. If that is the case, then this very well may be the first new evidence of the same object identified on March 16. If that is the case. Tomorrow’s surveillance flights will most likely be redirected onto this area,” he said.

AMSA told Australian Associated Press that it’s too early to say if the new imagery will alter the search patterns.

But Blaxland said he suspected AMSA will be studying this very, very closely tonight and recalibrating their plan as a consequence of this information.

` India ceases search and rescue of ` Malaysian Airlines MH370 ‘ as they now believe the flight was Hijacked’

#AceWorldNews India has put on hold the search and rescue operation of the Malaysian Airlines’ Boeing 777 that disappeared on March 8.

After searching the homes of pilots of the missing aircraft, Malaysian authorities now believe that flight MH370 was hijacked.

According to the latest reports, signals stopped coming from the aircraft after it changed course and was flying above the Indian Ocean.

India has been conducting searches in two areas, one around the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and another in the Bay of Bengal.
