Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was brought down by a ‘Buk’ ground-to-air missile, which exploded near the Boeing’s cockpit then peppered the plane with shrapnel, a state-run Russian weapons manufacturer says.
The claim confounds previous Kremlin claims that the flight was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet.
Moscow-headquartered Almaz-Antey – which has manufactured Buk missile systems since 2002 – said it conducted its own analysis of the pattern of damage seen on pieces of MH17 wreckage recovered from the fields of eastern Ukraine.
