The findings into last year's air disaster, due to be released at 1115 GMT by the Dutch Safety Board, are likely to exacerbate already strained ties between Russia and the West. The official report, after a 15-month long investigation, seeks to end speculation about why the Boeing 777 broke up in mid-air killing all 298 people on board.
