Lavrov on Kiev ATC tapes

|Description||Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it is unclear why Kiev does not release its ATC recordings|
At a press briefing in Moscow, Foreign Minister Lavrov is quoted by RIA-Novosti as follows:
“There has been nothing clear in regard to the reasons of why the full presentation of recordings from the black boxes, or reasons of why the Ukrainian side with all of its airplanes that were flying along the same echelon over the region [have not been provided], and there’s nothing clear of the reasons for the inability to present this information,” 
Diplomat-speak translation: Kiev has a guilty secret which anyone paying attention can easily decipher, namely that it was the Kiev military that executed the shoot-down. The nature of its planning and authorisation is not addressed - yet.
