The Netherlands are considering two options to bring to responsibility those guilty in the tragedy of MH-17 in Donbas region. This was announced by the Dutch Minister of Security and Justice Ard van der Steur.

He says there is an option to hear the case either in the international tribunal or in the court of a country taking part in the investigation, adding that the last option will be very complicated in the legal sense to implement.

The Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (also known as MH17), a scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down on 17 July 2014 over the territory of militants’ controlled territory in Donbas 2 years ago, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew members on board.

This fall the investigation group reported that the airliner was downed by the Russian anti-aircraft missile system "Buk", delivered to Donbas from Russia.
