The MH17 flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed near the city of Donetsk on 17 July 2014. All 298 passengers, mostly Dutch nationals, and crew members, were killed. Kiev accused local militias of downing the aircraft, while they, in turn, said that had no weapons capable of downing such a plane, APA reports citing TASS.
Investigators looking into the downing of flight MH17, which crashed not far from the city of Donetsk in 2014, have named 4 suspects, including 3 Russians and 1 Ukrainian, according to a victim's relatives.
The sources also stated that the court hearing of this case is set to take place in March 2020.
Russia, which has been excluded from the investigation, has also repeatedly denied the accusations about its involvement in the tragedy, arguing that it had provided the JIT with evidence proving that it was Ukraine's Buk systems that hit the Boeing. Moscow expressed its frustration that the information had been ignored by the investigators.
