A regular court hearing in the case of the downing of flight MH17 will begin today, November 8, at 10:00 local time (11:00 Kyiv time) in the Netherlands, Ukrinform reports.

As it was reported earlier, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 flying MH17 Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) was shot down in the sky over the Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. There were 298 people on board, all of whom died.

The Hague District Court began hearing the case of the crash of flight MH17 in March 2020.

On October 13, 2015, the Security Council of the Netherlands published a report on the causes of this catastrophe. It is established that the plane was shot down by the Buk anti-aircraft missile system.

In the summer of 2018, the Dutch government absolved Ukraine of responsibility for the MH17 crash.

The prosecutor in the court hearings in the case of MH17 said that three Russian citizens - Igor Girkin (Strelkov), Sergei Dubinsky, Oleg Pulatov - and Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko are accused of playing a leading, organizational and supporting role in the deployment of SAM "Buk" from which a Malaysian plane was shot down.

On October 28, it was reported that the lawyers of the relatives of the people who died in the crash of the Malaysian "Boeing" MH17 in Donbas, talk about about being persecuted. The Netherlands suspect Russian involvement.
