The Hague district court that looks into the case of MH17 downing over Donbas in 2014 has all pieces of evidence demonstrated.

According to NOS, the judges pay a lot of attention to phone conversations between Russian mercenaries, as well as to the cell network data, which allows investigators to figure out the location ofthose who participated in trasnportation of Buk missile launcher and deployed it. On June 17, during the process, the jury discussed the role of Igor Girkin, who is considered an important figure, taking into account the intercedpted conversations. He is supposed to be the one who ordered to bring the Buk to occupied Donbas from Russia on July 17, 2014. 

Suspect Oleg Pulatov, the only onsuspect who cooperates with the investigation claimed that the militants knew about wiretapping, so they allegedly exchanged fake information in their conversations. Another suspect, Sergei Dubinsky stated that the records of conversations were fake.
