Ukraine has evidence that proves that the Malaysia Airlines passenger plane flying over Ukrainian airspace from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17 was shot by separatist forces, with precision-guided weapons from Russia, said Ukraine's Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Kukhta to journalists in Yerevan today.
Ambassador Kukhta said Ukraine will hand over its evidence to a special commission established by the UN to determine the circumstances of the crash.
"Naturally, the separatists in Donetsk are armed with Russian weapons. They can't shoot with a slingshot and blow up a plane," he said.
Commenting on steps to alleviate the crisis in Ukraine, the Ukrainian ambassador said that he, as a Ukrainian citizen, considers US and EU sanctions against Russia too mild.
"After World War II, clear boundaries were drawn in the world and if one state wants to create a new order, it's simply unacceptable, and it must be suspended by the international community," he said.
