Ukraine and other countries initiating an international tribunal on investigation into the crash of the Flight MH17 over the Donbas are prepared for the fact that Russia might veto a draft resolution. This was announced by Yuriy Sergeyev, Permanent Representative of Ukraine at the UN, Joinfo.ua informs.

At the same time, Russia can not veto the right of states, whose citizens were killed in the crash, to demand punishment for the perpetrators.

“I am sure that the tribunal will be approved, even if not by the UN Security Council,” said Sergeyev.

For tactical reasons Sergeev did not say how 14 states of the UN Security Council would vote. According to him, most of them supported the resolution and the establishment of the tribunal, because there is no political motive, but only a desire of families to punish those responsible fo the deaths of their loved ones.

Previously, we reported that the countries-initiators of the tribunal on the Boeing-777 crash had a plan B in the event if Russia vetoed in the UN Security Council.
