Russia's defence ministry said on Thursday it had nothing to do with the downing of a plane over eastern Ukraine in 2014, Interfax news agency reported on Thursday.

Dutch prosecutors investigating the disaster said earlier on Thursday that a missile system from the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade of the Russian Armed Forces had been used to shoot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. All 298 people on board - two thirds of whom were Dutch - were killed.

The Russian military denied that any Russian missile complex had ever crossed the border between Russia and Ukraine, TASS news agency reported.
