The crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) happened over eastern Ukraine during the continuing war in the Donbass region. Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was downed, killing 283 passengers and 15 crew members.
The international investigative team failed to present any “conclusive evidence” to pin the blame on Moscow for its alleged role in downing MH17 over Ukraine, according to Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke.
Russia’s UN envoy has rejected the “unfounded conclusions” of the Netherlands and Australia, which claim Moscow was “responsible” for the deployment of a BUK missile system that downed flight MH17 over Ukraine in 2014.
Moscow has rejected any involvement in the crash of flight MH17 in Ukraine after the Netherlands and Australia declared Russia “responsible” for the deployment of a BUK missile system that downed the jet in 2014.
The Russian Defense Ministry has rejected new claims that flight MH17 over Ukraine was downed by a missile from a Russian unit, urging the Dutch-led probe to focus on studying hard facts instead of social media images.
The Dutch-led probe says the missile that hit flight MH17 over Ukraine came from a unit in western Russia. Claims about its Russian origin were made by activist group Bellingcat earlier, but it was seriously questioned back then.
