Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Serhiy Kyslytsia stated about Russia's attempt to use the UN site in order to obstruct justice over downed flight MH17. He did this in an exclusive commentary to Ukrinform upon the UN Security Council meeting.
"On Wednesday, Russia initiated the discussion at the UN Security Council on the international investigation into MH17 crash. We could imagine for a moment that Moscow finally decided to inform the Security Council of its willingness to cooperate with the investigation, as required by the Resolution 2166 adopted in 2014. But no miracle happened," he said.
Nevertheless, Kyslytsia expressed his firm conviction that Russia would not manage to evade responsibility for the crash.
"This fact, by the way, was clearly underscored today by Belgium speaking on behalf of other Joint Investigation Team members – the Netherlands, Australia, Malaysia and Ukraine – and other Security Council members," Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN added.
As we reported earlier, lawyer Jerry Skinner filed the lawsuit against Russia and its President Vladimir Putin on behalf of 40 families of the relatives of the victims of the MH17 crash to the European Court of Human Rights.
