Today, July 17 is a year since the day when the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with 298 people on board was hit over the Donbas. At the site of the MH17 crash will be held mourning ceremonies. Such ceremonies will also take place in several countries, where relatives of victims of the tragedy live, Joinfo.ua reports.

The investigation into the tragedy in ongoing. The Dutch investigators intend to publish the final report in October. At the same time, at the level of the United Nations there is an ongoing debate regarding the establishment of an international tribunal to the punish people involved in knocking down the aircraft.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted an appeal to the UN to establish an international tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the crimes associated with the downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 of July 17 last year.

Earlier it was reported that the Netherlands initiated the formation of the international tribunal under UN Security Council in the case of the Boeing-777 crash. Later this idea was supported by Malaysia and Australia.

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.

It should be recalled that the Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke out against the organization of the international tribunal to investigate the Boeing-777 crash, since it is “counterproductive and premature.”
