Dutch minister: MH17 investigation points to Russian involvement

Dutch Australia Name Russia As Behind MH17 Downing Dutch minister: MH17 investigation points to Russian involvement

Holding Russia accountable for its part in the downing of flight MH17 is separate from the criminal investigation and any prosecution and trial of the perpetrators of the downing of flight MH17.

Schansman was a native of Fort Lee, New Jersey, though he spent much of his upbringing in Holland.

Interim findings released this week by prosecutors investigating the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 point to Russian involvement, the Dutch foreign minister said on Friday.

They recreated the route taken by the missile convoy from Kursk across the border into Ukraine using videos and images.

The announcement by the foreign ministers of both countries came a day after global investigators announced that the missile system that brought down the Amsterdam-Kuala Lumpur flight came from a Russia-based military unit.

The five-nation team says the Buk missile belonged to a part of the Russian armed forces and was sacked from a part of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

"The Russian government must now answer for its actions in relation to the downing of MH17".

The Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said there is a link between the Russian army, and the missile that destroyed the aircraft.

The move won swift support from worldwide allies, a day after investigators concluded that the Russian-made BUK missile which tore apart the Boeing 777 passenger plane in mid-air on July 17, 2014 came from a Russian military brigade based in southwestern Kursk.

The investigators refrained from blaming Russian soldiers directly for firing the missile, which could have been launched by Ukrainian separatists.

Piet Ploeg of the relatives foundation Vliegramp MH17 told broadcaster NOS he now expects the Dutch government to take action, for example, by taking Russian Federation to court for complicity in the downing of the plane.

On July 14, 2014, in a phone call with Oleg Bugrov, then a "deputy defense minister" of the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic", Ivannikov told that "in a couple of days" Russian-led forces would get a Buk missile system to defend against Ukrainian warplanes.

"I asked [Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok] about facts proving these claims".

A Dutch cabinet statement said a "possible" next step would be presenting the case to an global court or organisation for their judgment, adding Australia shared its assessment of Russia's role. The group, which uses mainly open source research, identified the 53rd brigade as the potential source of the Buk system almost two years ago.

Pointing out that Russian Federation does not have access to the MH17 investigation material which is not the case with Ukraine; Mirkovic said that he does not believe in the investigative group's neutral stance.

Peters' statement on the MH17 investigation made no equivocations and New Zealand is likely to take many of its cues from the Australian Government.

In a written statement, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said: "That a sophisticated weapon belonging to the Russian Army was dispatched and used to shoot down a civilian aircraft should be of grave global concern".

"All findings from this forensic investigation confirm the earlier conclusion of the JIT that Flight MH 17 was shot down by 9M38 series missile", said Jennifer Hurst of the Australian Federal Police.

He told reporters gathered for a press conference in Utrecht that "the 53rd Brigade forms part of the Russian armed forces".

But they are appealing for further information, especially about who was among the BUK's crew, and who ordered the plane to be shot down.
