The Council of Ministers of the Netherlands is filing a lawsuit against Russia for the downing of the Boeing 777-200ER (Flight MH17) over Donbas. All the documents will be attached to the individual lawsuit of the relatives of the victims. This was reported on the Council's official website.
"Today (on July 10 - 112 International.), the Council of Ministers has decided to bring Russia to justice in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) for its role in the downing of Flight MH17. By filing a so-called 'state complaint', the Council of Ministers provides the ECHR with all available and relevant information about the downed flight MH17," the statement reads.
At the same time, the government attaches great importance to the continuation of meetings with the Russian side on the issue of state responsibility in order to "find a fair solution to the enormous suffering and damage caused by the MH17 disaster."
The report also says that the Netherlands wants to achieve truth, justice, and responsibility in the case of the death of 298 people, most of whom were citizens of the Netherlands.
As we reported earlier, Dutch prosecutors recorded new telephone conversations proving that the Boeing-777-200ER, flying to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down over Donbas in 2014 from the Buk missile system.
