The Dutch Public Prosecution Service at April 3, 2018 published a press report stating that two independant radar specialists confirmed the earlier conclusion by the Joint Investigation Team that a BUK missile in flight could possibly not have been detected by Russian radar.
Russia stated in a September 2016 pressconference, a few days before JIT would release information on the preliminary results of the criminal investigation, that Russian radar would be able to detect a missile when launched from an area south of Snizhne.
The Dutch Public Prosecution Service press report included some more interesting details included in this PDF. It states
No data from the Buturinskoe radar station were provided.
In March 2017 the Public Prosecution Service asked the authorities of the Russian Federation to provide
the radar images (from 14 July 2014 up to and including 18 July 2014) from the Ust-Donetsk and
Buturinskoe radar stations, or other radar stations that had the environment of Lugansk and Donetsk
within their reach, in the ASTERIX format.
None of the international media like newspapers and online media reported this! They all failed to report that Russia failed to hand over the Buturinskoe radar station data.
There is one exception! FlightGlobal mentioned it.
Investigators had sought data from a second radar station, sited at Baturinskaya, but none has been supplied by the Russian government.
This is another example of media failure on MH17.by
