“The Ukrainian Air Force did not carry out flights on the day of the Boeing 777 crash. The Ukrainian armed forces anti-aircraft missile systems were not used, and there was not a single launch of anti-aircraft guided missiles,” the ministry said in a statement on Friday.

Some media reported earlier that training by the 156th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment of the Ukrainian armed forces may have caused the Boeing’s crash.

A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Donetsk region, killing all the 298 people on board.
