Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was shot down in the skies over Donbas on July 17, 2014. There were 298 people on board - 283 passengers and 15 crew members. They all died. This disaster, in terms of the number of deaths, became the largest in the history of civilian aviation since September 11, 2001. At that time, the area where the plane crashed was controlled by pro-Russian militants.

On July 10, the Netherlands filed a lawsuit against the Russian Federation in the European Court of Human Rights. Individual complaints from relatives of those killed in the crash and the lawsuit of the government of the country were combined.
