Australia Urges Russia To Cooperate With Initiatives To Prosecute MH17 Suspects

Three years on from the downing of a Malaysia Airlines flight over Ukraine, the Australian government is staunchly committed to bringing those responsible to justice.

The commemoration came as worldwide investigators continue their painstaking probe aimed at prosecuting those responsible for shooting down the plane and killing all the passengers and crew.

"It was a barefaced crime that could have been avoided if not for the Russian aggression, Russian system and Russian missile that came from Russian territory", Poroshenko wrote.

Russian Federation has denied all involvement, and a number of issues have made the case hard to bring to court. On its Board there were 298 people, they all died.

The Netherlands announced in early July that it would prosecute those involved in bringing the plane down.

10 injured by runaway boat
Ten people, including the driver, were injured after they were ejected from an out-of-control boat Saturday in a lake in Indiana. Carlile was able to use a nearby personal watercraft and jump onto the runaway boat while both boats were still in motion.


The European Union's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, reiterated the bloc's "deepest sympathy and respect to all those who lost their loved ones" in the crash.

The so-called "forest monument", designed by Dutch landscape artist Ronald Westerhuis, is also surrounded by sunflowers, which the memorial website says "refer to the sunflower fields in eastern Ukraine where some parts of the plane wreckage were found".

"We expect all the States that are in a position to assist the investigation and prosecution of those responsible to do so, as demanded by United Nations Security Council Resolution 2166". The attendees included family members of the victims, Dutch King Wilhem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, and other global guests and politicians.

A glistening steel structure shaped like an eye and set before a dark wall bears the names of the victims.

Last week, more than 90 family members attended a memorial in Malaysia for victims and a briefing on the ongoing probe.

Flags are half-mast prior to the revealing of the National Monument for the MH17 victims.

MH17 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down on July 17, 2014, and crashed in Ukraine's disputed Donetsk region.

In Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko said his country is mourning the victims and said he believes the perpetrators of the attack will be brought to justice.

"I am convinced that the impartiality of the Dutch justice will complete this path".
