Russian Parliament Never Mentioned Ukrainian Missile That Downed Russian Airliner

The State Duma (lower house of parliament) adopted on Thursday a statement over the crash of a Russian Tu-154 airliner downed by a Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile on October 4, 2001 over the Black Sea. In the document, the deputies expressing sympathy to the near and dear ones of the Russian and Israeli citizens who died in the disaster never mentioned Ukraine's responsibility for this tragedy. The statement has no word to say that the passenger jet was brought down by a Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile, as a state commission that investigated the circumstances of the accident said in Sochi. Russian parliamentarians only spoke of the need "to coordinate efforts" of all states "in protecting people, including from tragic consequences of anyone's incompetence or irresponsibility".
