The Russian Federation claims, that de jure the lawsuit of MH17 victims’ relatives against Russia does not exist, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitryi Peskov stated, reports ‘RIA News’.

‘A lawsuit becomes a lawsuit after it had been passed to the court and after the court had informed the sued party about the lawsuit. So far, it’s not the case, thus, de jure, there is no lawsuit’, - Peskov stated.

It has been reported earlier, that relatives of MH17 victims, downed over east Ukraine in July 2014, filed a lawsuit against Russia and its President Vladimir Putin over alleged involvement to the disaster.

The Malaysian Airlines' Boeing 777 crashed in eastern Ukraine in the held territory by Russian-backed militants on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board.
