Earlier, Russia stated that it can no longer continue trilateral consultations with Australia and the Netherlands over the MH17 plane crash. In its turn, the Dutch Foreign Ministry summoned Aleksandr Shulgin, the Russian ambassador due to Moscow's decision to breach contacts with Amsterdam in consultations about the responsibility for the MH17 downing.
The plane 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 the Donetsk region, not far from Snizhne town. All 298 people aboard deceased; most of the victims, 196, were Dutch, but there were citizens of another nine countries as well.
