Zakharova called “unfair fantasy” the rumors of the recognition of Russia guilt for the downed “Boeing”
Moscow. 14 Feb. INTERFAX.RU — Reports that Russia is ready to discuss the issue of compensation and the admission of guilt for the collapse of the Malaysian “Boeing” — fake, said Thursday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
She stressed that we are talking about documented correspondence and expressed consent of the Netherlands and Australia.
“Free interpretation of the statements of the Russian foreign Ministry, alleged Russia, having agreed to consultation demonstrates a willingness to accept responsibility in the matter of the Malaysian Boeing — it’s just a fantasy, not bona fideI. The same applies to reflections about the possibility of discussion in the consultations some kind of compensation as again, some kind of atonement. This is a fake“, — said Zakharov.
