Malaysian government expects that the investigation reveals the names of those behind the MH17 crash by the end of this year, or early 2018. Liou Tiong Lai, the country’s transport minister said that at a memorial service in Putrajaya, the new administrative capital city.

The families of 43 Malaysians who had perished in the disaster also visited the ceremony, Voice of America reported.  

‘I hope by the end of the year or early 2018 we’ll see whether we can bring these persons to justice,’ the official said.

As 112 International reported, on July 17, the memorial site will be opened in Amsterdam in order to honor the memory of the MH17 crash victims. The memorial complex will be located near Schiphol international airport, where flight MH17 departed from on that day.

Ukraine insists Russia and the Kremlin-backed mercenaries are behind the tragic incident that claimed lives of 298 civilians; the missile fired from Russian-made Buk missile system hit the Boeing 777, flight MH17, over Donetsk region in July 2014, as the plane was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. None of the passengers or the crew survived.
