Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic Aleksandr Boroday transferred the two “black boxes” recovered by the Donetsk militia from the crash site of Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 flight MH17 to the Malaysian delegation. The meeting was held in Torez today with a large number of members of the press present.
The Malaysian experts have publicly confirmed that the boxes are intact.
Perhaps these boxes will become the most famous “black boxes” in the history of aviation accidents. Publishing photos of this event, all Western media recognized that the tension around the crash in Donbass reduced significantly. The Western media has finally acknowledged and published the reconstruction of events presented yesterday in a briefing by Russia’s Defense Ministry.
Malaysian official receiving the “black boxes” called Boroday “His Excellency” (as it should be with reference to the head of state) and the transfer ceremony took place in full compliance with diplomatic protocol between two foreign countries – Malaysia and Donetsk People’s Republic, respectively. Cries of indignation from Kiev were allegedly heard on the other side of the equator.
