The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Australia sent a letter to the UN Security Council with the appeal to support the idea of ​​establishing an international tribunal on the investigation into the Malaysian Boeing-777 crash in the Donbas, Joinfo.ua reports referring to the Reuters agency.

“The establishment of an international criminal tribunal … would send a clear message that the international community will not tolerate acts that threaten international peace and security by endangering civil aviation,” Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said in a statement.

He believes that the tribunal in the case of the fate of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 will help “ensure broad international support for prosecutions and would maximise the prospects of securing international cooperation, which will be necessary for an effective prosecution.”

Earlier it was reported that the Netherlands had initiated the establishment of an international tribunal in the case of a passenger aircraft Boeing 777 under UN Security Council. Later this idea was supported by Malaysia.

Recently, it was reported that the British lawyers intended to make Putin compensate hundreds of millions of pounds for the downed Boeing-777.

At the same time, the Kremlin rejects all the charges and promises to veto the establishment of an international tribunal in the UN. However, even the Russian experts came to the conclusion that the most probable reason for the crash of the Boeing 777 in the Donbas was the destruct of the 9M38M1 surface-to-air missile from the Buk-M1 anti-aircraft missile system.
