The Dutch court will be looking into the MH17 disaster that took place in Donbas in July 2014. The decision was made by the joint investigation group that consists of the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Malaysia and Ukraine.

Previously, in 2015, the UN rejected the idea of creating the international tribunal over those behind the tragedy; back then, Russia vetoed the decision of the UN SC session.

As is known, the MH17 tragedy took place in the sky over Donetsk region in July 2014. Boeing 777, flight MH17, was downed by the anti-aircraft missile while on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

The investigation found out that the missile was fired from Buk, the Russian-made missile launcher, from the militant-occupied section of Donetsk region. There were 298 passengers on board,
