Russian radio equipment recorded a radar station of the Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile system Buk was active on the day the Malaysian airliner crashed, officials with the Russian Defense Ministry said. The part of the route of the Malaysian jet, as well as a place of its crash, fall into the destruction area of two Ukrainian batteries of long-range anti-aircraft missile S-200 and three batteries of medium-range SAM Buk-M1.

Spokespeople for the Defense Ministry clarified that the Russian aero-technical equipment recorded active operations of radar station RLS-9s18 "Dome" of a battery of SAM Buk-M1, stationed near the village of Styla (30 kilometers south of Donetsk).

Officials also said that technical features of SAM Buk-M1 allow to exchange information on air targets between batteries of one division.

"Thus, the launch of missiles could be conducted from all batteries stationed in the village of Avdiyivka (8 kilometers north of Donetsk) or Gruzsko-Zaryanskoe (25 kilometers east of Donetsk)," concluded the Defense Ministry.

As a result of the crash of Boeing 777 on July 17 over the territory of Ukraine, 298 people were killed.
