Dutch court resumes hearing on MH17 crash case

The trial in the case of the crash of the Malaysian Boeing (flight MH17) in Donbass in 2014 resumed in the specially protected Schiphol complex in the Netherlands. It is reported with reference to RIA Novosti.

MH17 hearings resumed in the Netherlands on Monday, June 8th. The Dutch state prosecution believes that Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinsky, Oleg Pulatov and Leonid Kharchenko played a major role in deploying the Buk air defense system, which shot down a Malaysian aircraft, while other people, the Buk air defense crew, also played a role.

Malaysian Boeing, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur by flight MH17, crashed on July 17, 2014 near Donetsk. Onboard there were 298 people, all of them died. Kiev accused the militias of the disaster, they said they did not have the means to bring down the aircraft at such a height.

Russia has repeatedly called allegations of the presence of the Russian military in the conflict zone, and the Russian prosecutor’s office informed the Dutch side of its findings about the launch of a Ukrainian missile from the territory controlled by Kiev.
