One obvious question was ignored by the global media. Why was Ukraine, a party involved in a conflict with separatist rebels and as such should have been rightly regarded as a suspect, be included in the investigation? If Ukraine was included, why not Russia?
And why was Malaysia, the owner of the plane, left out of the initial “state responsibility” meeting and the non-disclosure pact? Malaysia was only invited to join the JIT much later, and that too as part of the technical study team but not the criminal investigation.
