Ukraine set up a commission to investigate the reasons of the Russian Tu-154 plane crash. Something has to be done. Ukraine’s Defense Minister Alexander Kuzmuk temporarily dismissed the anti-missile defense troops commander-in-chief, Vladimir Tkachev and his deputy Vladimir Dyakov.
Ukraine now resembles a widow who can not get used to her husband’s death and tries to let it all be like before. It is not known, what else can be found to prove Ukraine’s guilt in the tragedy – let’s face it. The fact have been announced by the inter-state commission, approved by Ukraine’s Security Council Secretary. However, the show with the investigation is still going on. The head of the Defense Ministry sent in his resignation himself, but Ukrainian President did not accept that, so now the Minister dismissed the commander of the anti-missile defense troops.
The President of the country has not yet pronounced the official apologies. It seems that we have to wait for the investigation results from another, Ukrainian investigation commission.
