"As we know it was a Buk missile from the 9M38-series. In parts of the plane wreckage as well as in bodies of victims and also on the crash site, different parts of the type of missile were found. These parts were secured by the jet and carefully examined by forensic experts. For example, examinations were conducted into the presence of explosive substances, the elemental composition of certain metal parts and analysis of paints. Also, pieces of debris and parts found on the crash site were visually compared with reference material consisting of various Buk missiles available to the jet. In addition a missile was detonated in a controlled environment so that comparisons could also be made with parts of a detonated missile."
