Volodymyr Tsemakh, the key suspect in the MH17 downing over Donbas in 2014, is likely to get back to the occupied territory of Donbas; this is where he resided before the special operation of the SBU, Ukraine's State Security Service that detained him earlier this year. Oleg Peresada, the prosecutor said this as quoted by Hromadske.

"One cannot rule out he would escape, flee from justice. The prosecutor's office appealed against upholding motion of Tsemakh's lawyer; not all the accomplices are known yet", the Prosecutor said.

Asked if Ukraine could pass Tsemakh to Russia within the lawyers' exchange process, Peresada replied: "The issue of exchange is a political one, it is beyond my competence".

Earlier today, Kyiv Appeal Court released Volodymyr Tsemakh under personal recognizance, though the Dutch side asked Ukraine not to do this, saying he would be a valuable witness in this case.
