The ambassador of the Netherlands in Moscow Dartel made a statement that the country’s international investigation group of the crash of Malaysian airlines’ Flight MH17 over Donbas on 17 July 2014 has dropped the efforts to establish the tribunal with the UN Security Council resolution, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to Russian media.

Among other options of investigation the ambassador named filing the case to the International Criminal Court or to court in another country.

Ron van Dartel also said that the Netherlands does not intend to change the date of publication of the report on the investigation of the disaster, which was announced to be held in the Netherlands, as previously was reported, on October 13.

This summer, the Netherlands initiated the establishing of an international tribunal on the crash of Flight MH17 by the UN Security Council. Later this idea was supported by Malaysia, Australia, Belgium, Britain and France. But Russia vetoed the draft resolution of the UN Security Council, what confirmed, according to most international experts and politicians, its involvement in the crash of the liner.

Not so long ago it was reported that British lawyers of the victim’s families announced the intention to sue Russia for hundreds of millions of pounds.
