MH17 crash: Russian and Dutch reports reach contradictory conclusions

Dutch daily “De Volkskrant” quoted three sources close to the investigation on Tuesday, saying that the 15-month Dutch-led inquiry had found that the plane was hit by a BUK surface-to-air missile.
The Malaysian airliner crashed en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board, most of whom were Dutch citizens. The aircraft was flying over rebel-controlled eastern Ukraine at the time of the incident.
Two sources told the “Volkskrant” on Tuesday that “the BUK missile is developed and made in Russia.”
