 UN Security Council to consider resolution on establishment of tribunal on Malaysian Boeing downing today

The United Nations Security Council will vote the resolution regarding the creation of the international tribunal to investigate Boeing-777 crash, which occurred in the Donbas last year, on Wednesday, July 29.

It is expected that the vote for the draft resolution will take place Wednesday afternoon, Censor.NET reports citing Radio Liberty.

The Council will be submitted a document proposed by the delegation of Malaysia, which qualifies the incident as "a threat to international peace and security" and provides for the establishment of an international tribunal. According to the authorities of the country, they call for the UN Security Council to create the tribunal "for the sole purpose - to ensure the prosecution of those responsible for the crime associated with the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 downing July 17, 2014".

Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine appealed to the UN Security Council to establish an international criminal tribunal to bring to justice those responsible for the downing of the flight MH17 passenger plane in the Donbas a year ago. At the same time Russia strongly opposes its creation. The Russian Federation has already made it clear that it would veto the draft resolution.
