Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin has lambasted those who use the downing of a passenger jet MH17 in eastern Ukraine for "mercenary objectives," the Kremlin said Monday.
In a statement posted on the Kremlin website, Putin again lashed out at Ukraine for ongoing violence with pro-Russian rebels in the eastern part of the country.
He says the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash is being used for others' "mercenary objectives," although he does not say specifically who.
Putin also says he supports a crash investigation by a "full team of experts" under the auspices of the International Civil Aviation Organization, a UN agency.
Since a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet was downed Thursday over Ukraine, killing everyone on board, the US and others have blamed Moscow, which they say supplies and trains the rebels.
Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov added that Russia was ready for the transfer of cutting edge technologies and 'additional manufacturing' of weapons systems to India
The Lake Baikal telescope in Siberia is one of many efforts to hunt for neutrinos in the world’s most remote places.
