Australian Anthony Maslin who lost three children in the MH17 catastrophe criticized U.S. President Donald Trump that he did not raise the issue of the tragedy at the meeting in Helsinki as he wrote on Facebook.
“That the plane was hit by a Russian missile has been proven to be an irrefutable fact. That the man whose arse you’ve just been kissing did this, and continues to lie about it, is an irrefutable fact. It's not anger that I feel towards the two of you, its something much, much worse,” he wrote.
The Netherlands and Australia officially accused Russia of the downing of the MH17 plane. Particularly, when the Dutch prosecutors found the evidence that the plane was downed from the Russian “Buk”.
As we reported an action in the memory of victims of the MH17 tragedy took place in Kyiv near the Embassy of the Netherlands on July 17. The organizers of the event noted that it should not be perceived as the action or some protest, it is just a commemoration of the deceased.

The tragedy took place in the sky over the militant-held section of Donetsk region. All 298 people aboard deceased; most of the victims, 196, were Dutch, but there were citizens of other nine countries as well.
