Ukraine ambassador: Dutch did in fact request MH17 radar images
The Dutch Safety Board did in fact request raw radar images of the flight MH17 disaster from the Ukrainian government, Ukraine ambassador Olexander Horin said to RTL Nieuws This is in response to former First Deputy Minister of Transport Vladimir Shulmeister statements on Wednesday that the Ukrainian government never received a request for radar images from the Safety Board. According to him, it may be that the Safety Board only asked the Ukraine military for these images. "The radar images were absolutely requested by the Safety Board, the researchers also wrote that in their report", Horin said to RTL, adding that the reason the Ukraine did not provide any images, is because none are available. "The first radar was destroyed, the second was in maintenance and the third had no range. Schulmeister's statements are not true. There may be a misunderstanding."
