12:03 pm
the book missile launch system into ukraine that eventually brought down the mh 17 now as for the intentions of the investigation they bound to take it to the court of law the breach treated this quite a number of times and they in relation to that they made a couple of remarks that a they are not releasing all evidence all information in their possession to the public and they are saying that so the public might still have some questions over how they determine their guilt how these this is why they believe that they're guilty because mind they are still suspects so it's innocent until proven guilty and so some of this information will only be released if the court decides so if the judge deems some of the information worthy and that it deems that it should be released and made public then it's up to the judge but until the case gets into court we are still in the dark when it comes to
12:04 pm
some of the evidence what's russia's reaction been to today's development well of course it's a big accusation 4 people 3 of them russian one another one ukrainian russia has said that they. feel that russia feels nothing but regret over this case and that is because according to the russian foreign ministry the joint investigation team takes into account information that it received from questionable sources this is how the foreign ministry put it now some information is known to have they have known to have gathered some information for instance from social media some of the of the information came from ukraine a biased site a is a side with a horse in this race and russia also once again reiterated its readiness to cooperate and also underline the fact that more school already has done so quite a number of times that that it has provided plenty of information has been knocking on many many doors but it has been sort of ostracized and kept away from the
12:05 pm
investigation that's an important point is that moscow has provided with data done the years as you say what did the investigation there for doing well absolutely and i mean the accusations against russia have become sort of a major line like a highway so a thematic highway if i might put it this way at today's media conference but the investigators were a bit they sent mixed signals because at 1st they were saying that they received no information from russia no corporation whatsoever that russia didn't explain anything and then admitting that he did indeed received plenty of information and they had the even looked at it will have a listen yourself. if you look back you can establish that from the 1st day after the 17th of july the russian federation hasn't disclosed anything about what happened and that is a slap in the face to all the relatives of the victims and i call on them to start cooperating to tell us what happened there we received the information from murder
12:06 pm
russian federation from ocean about the missile and the documents about the missile and we also received the rod or. that wasn't clear enough to say exactly what what's happened with the missile given didn't give us the right picture right so courtly differing stance is there what do we know what russia shared yes of course we do and i mean for instance what this man has been talking about he's been saying that it's the documents didn't make it clear what happened on the day what happened to the missile well for instance russia showed the original documents dating all the way back to the u.s.s.r. the russian defense ministry traced the missile that downed the mh 17 jet and it showed that since 1906 you create a ukraine possessed ukraine it would be the missile was in a position over ukraine and that it never left the country so another another thing
12:07 pm
is radar data which the man in the clip also mentioned may seem like a lot to take in so we preferred a short clip explaining what they what they received and what they are now saying wasn't clear enough doesn't paint a clear enough picture have a look. the previous g 80 investigation so many tram frankly shouting accusations at russia but instead of trying to out yell its critics russia showed original documents raw data and experiment results which poked holes in the investigation exhibit a. russia's defense ministry dug into its archives and deep it traced the missile based on the pieces discovered among the debris of m.h. 17 the ministry determined its tail number revealing the full life cycle of the project tile manufactured back in the days of the soviet union in 1986 the missile
12:08 pm
was shipped to a military base in ukraine it never left the territorial the soviet republic and then after the breakup of uses of the country according to the ministries data the book missile was moved only within the borders over ukraine and in 2014 it was set up and stored at a base in the west of the country exhibit b. . the many fracture of book messiah was a conducted a feel experiment over its own it targeted a segment of an aircraft ho similar to the downed boeing with book missiles the goal was to determine the likely angle from which the projectile impacted on the malaysian aircraft back in 20 c. and consequentially pinpoint the likely spot on the ground from which the shot was fired the verdict it could have only been launched from the ukraine controlled part of the front line exhibit c.
12:09 pm
. russia provided plenty of technical results to the dutch led investigation from the specs of the book missile to raider readings from southern russia which borders with these 2 crane according to most school with the. and be food and on that day raiders failed to detect a new language which would be impossible if indeed a book missing had been fired from a rebel controlled area. we also touch in another aspect because it's not just russia that's been critical of the probe no no russia was already mentioned russia was kept away from the probe it wasn't part of it but malaysia the country with the direct human lives lost from this heinous tragedy they would while they were part of the investigation we did see a malaysian representatives malaysian representative sitting behind that able even delivering some of his remarks but despite that malaysia has repeatedly
12:10 pm
criticized this probe even having access to it saying that it was made into a political farce that it has that it has been politicized to a great extent and this is not something that their country that has suffered directly from the tragedy wanted from it have a listen. the accusing russians of. what decency every day you could even be the ukrainian government because they do have does him. no way we excluded from the examination but from the very beginning we see too much politics indeed the idea was not to find out how did this happen when all that. seemed to be concerned that it did need to be on russia here we have but these who have some political
12:11 pm
interests in the matter and they examine well anyway the dutch led investigation has indicated that the next step on this train the next stop on the strain is court court hearings court proceedings and in court both sides should be represented even even while they said that they won't try to extradite anybody from russia that they will merely ask russia's law enforcement of russia security service to question the people they've named as suspects still even if they are tried in absentia should they should have a lawyer they have a right to have a lawyer and in all likelihood there will be a person defending them in court so the judge will have to have a look and to weigh the information the evidence presented by both the prosecution and by the defense so if we'll see how that fares in court how the evidence provided by both of the 80 and russia and if anything new comes up how that will
12:12 pm
fare yeah i want to delve deeper into that now with a guest on the program igor thank you because we're joining vanished like all he's an aviation lawyer also represents relatives of the german m.h. 17 victims you're very welcome to the program how do you feel about the investigator statements on the charges brought against 4 individuals in connection with the tragedy. good evening 1st of all i have the impression that the investigation was just one way as you may know we represent german relatives against the ukraine who failed to close the ashtrays about this rebel region and about this about. possible told of the ukrainian government nothing is said in the investigation and of course you claim somebody said that $298.00 people were killed and you
12:13 pm
also should ask the question about ukrainian involvement and you ukraine is a part of the investigation russia know we heard about this before and we know we can expect. predict why this is the case just maybe sum up for us if you will haiku what's the legal challenge for what you're doing against ukraine at the european court of human rights. this is just to get compensation for the loss of next of kin. the ukrainian government failed to close the airspace rare a rare that some of the areas such missiles were. involved in the case because some days or some hours before there was struck by on a military aircraft in and hide which was not. at and that at the
12:14 pm
shoot which was not close by india or. ukrainian government so we try to get compensation for this and at the same time of course the same intention has g.i. t. is. possible call of. them. at least. to get them to feeling that. something is disclosed and not dumping it. somewhere which would lead to some sort of closure of course for the relatives after so many years do you for see any time in the near future when that would be so well when those people your representative would feel as if there is closure. not at the moment i cannot predict when this will be the case already 2 years waiting for at this mission whether or not
12:15 pm
this case will be opened at the. court. and receive that they've received their own complaint and we receive some explanation from the ukrainian government and that's it then 2 years 3 or a thing for having that case in the court having at least the decision whether or not they both thought it proceeding i'm sure you've been following the details of the of the probe how solid is the investigators case and what do you think will be the outcome of the trial next march will it be lengthy. it should be a lengthy paid course. what they have investigated. they say that they have investigate something because they present it to the public nothing and they explain that by. natural all and by that procedures
12:16 pm
they have to follow but on the other side as if i'm not brong what i understood is that the investigators are not quite sure what that should be it will be at these times the full of people because it was said nothing but at the end why nobody but be invited and it is up. to the chuch to give them. the chance to be a representative and lawyer knowing the truth all knowing all the procedures that should be followed thank you very much for coming on the program and sharing your stance heikal vanished nytol lawyer representing relatives of the german victims of m.h. 70 thank you. ok let's move on to some more global news on the program now members of the venice wieland opposition are being implicated in a corruption scandal leaked documents appear to reveal that officials from one

12:20 pm

great artists and salutations war is cancer inevitable to those who profit from it for those who pay for it the cost is just too high and that cost seems on the minds of world leaders as tensions between iran and the united states intensified at least in the war of words last week the sabers were rattled toward iran after 2 more oil tankers were damaged off their shores and video released by the u.s. seemed to suggest some. radian involvement as usual all options are on the table though the rhetoric took a sharp turn on tuesday when a radian president hassan rouhani told state television are wrong will not wage war against a nation that is facing us are a group of politicians with little experience and response secretary of state might pompei it took umbrage with the very suggestion that his desire for war with iran was anything less than pure telling journalists in florida we are there to deter

aggression president trump does not want war of course despite a leader who doesn't want war the us announced yesterday it was sending a 1000 additional troops to the middle east and president trump called the tanker attacks minor so which is it are we on the brink of world war 3 or not well acting defense secretary and former boeing executive patrick shanahan seems to think so as he announced this week that he authorized approximately those 1000 additional troops for defensive purposes to address air davil and ground based threats in the middle east then shanahan announced he was removing himself from consideration for the job he just used to send a 1000 young americans into a war even he can't justify not that this will slow the or roll since a former lobbyist for raytheon is most likely taking his plates so if this is all just a case of crossed wires ego has the lack of meaningful diplomacy amongst middle eastern countries and the interference by the us.
