 Investigation into MH-17 tragedy should be finished, - Poroshenko

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak have stressed the importance of bringing to responsibility those guilty of causing the crash of the Malaysian MH-17 Boeing plane in July of 2014.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by Interfax-Ukraine.

Speaking after the talks with the Malaysian PM, Poroshenko said both leaders had reiterated their joint stance on the need to finish the investigation into the MH-17 tragedy. Everything should be done to bring those guilty of it to responsibility, Ukraine's president said.

Boeing MH-17 of Malaysian Airlines from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur was shot down on July 17, 2017 over Torez, the Donetsk region. All 298 people on board were killed.

Censor.NET has been reporting about the investigation of the crash investigation progress and published exclusive photos of the hangar and the submunitions of Russian missile Buk-M1-2, featured in the criminal investigation. Prosecutor's Offices of the Netherlands and Australia have prepared convincing evidence. It was established that submunitions that hit the Boeing exactly match those from the warhead of the latest Russian anti-aircraft missile Buk-M1-2. The system was developed in 1997, put into service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 1998, and was never delivered to Ukraine. In addition, independent experts from Germany, England and Poland studied the fragments of the debris and concluded they were part of a Russian Buk missile. Modern chemical analysis has identified the composition of the metal and found parts of the glass and skin of the same downed Boeing that had been cut by these elements prior to hitting the people.

In November 2015, President Poroshenko visited the Netherlands and said that Ukraine was employing its membership in the UN Security Council for investigation of the MH17 tragedy.

In May 2016, Australian law firm LHD filed a lawsuit against Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin to the European Court for Human Rights on behalf of relatives of those killed in the Malaysian Boeing MH17. The lawsuit names Putin as accused defendant and demands $10 million for each killed passenger.

On July 17, 2016 President Poroshenko said that Russia was the only country inhibiting the investigation into the MH-17 crash.

"Russia, abusing the right of veto, blocked the decision of the UN Security Council to establish the International Tribunal to investigate the downing of MH17, which is an indirect and logical proof of its involvement in the crime. In spite of this, we and our partners are working and doing everything necessary to ensure accountability of all those behind this tragedy," the head of state remarked.
