"What is important to me is that the fact of the matter is uncovered. It's significant for me that my nation isn't faulted for this misfortune," Pulatov said in a video message to decided in June as the introduction of proof wrapped up.

The other three suspects are Russians Igor Girkin and Sergey Dubinskiy, and supportive of Russia Ukrainian revolutionary Leonid Kharchenko. Every one of the four were accused of killing every one of those ready for their supposed association in the misfortune, remembering the vehicle of the rocket framework for and out of Ukraine.

Regardless of whether indicted, it is improbable they would carry out any jail punishment any time soon.
