The UN Malaysian delegation circulated a Security Council draft resolution claiming to set up an international tribunal for an independent investigation into the Boeing 777 downing last July.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainska Pravda, this is announced by Interfax-Ukraine.

The draft states the Security Council should "establish an international tribunal for the sole purpose of prosecuting persons responsible for the crime connected with the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on July 17, 2014".

According to Malaysia, the tribunal would be "an effective guarantee for an independent and impartial investigation process," because the downing of the plane became a "threat to international peace and security."

Earlier, the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennadiy Gatilov said that Russia was not satisfied with the idea of the tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the Boeing crash.
