The Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament of the British Parliament published its annual report, which based on MI6 intelligence data claims that the missile system from which Boeing 777 was shot down in the sky over the Donbas, is of Russian origin. This is stated in the report on the parliament's website.

"Russia conducts information warfare on a massive scale... An early example of this was a hugely intensive, multi-channel propaganda effort to persuade the world that Russia bore no responsibility for the shooting down of [Malaysian Airlines flight] MH-17 (an outright falsehood: we know beyond any reasonable doubt that the Russian military supplied and subsequently recovered the missile launcher),” the report says.

As it was reported earlier trial over suspects in downed Boeing MH17 case to be held in Hague. Although nobody has been charged yet, the investigation is under way, and Hague is the place where the trial should be held.

Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines, flight number MH17, was destroyed while performing a regular flight from the Netherlands to Malaysia in July 2014. The tragedy took place in the sky over the militant-held section of Donetsk region. All 298 people aboard deceased; most of the victims,196, were Dutch, but there were citizens of other nine countries as well.

The international investigation group found out that the civilian aircraft was downed by the surface-to-air missile; it was fired from Buk, the anti-aircraft missile launcher, which belonged to a unit of the regular Russian army and was operated by servicemen of Russia’s armed forces. The group decided that the perpetrators of the tragedy will be judged in the Netherlands, namely in the ICCT.
