3 years on, families honor loved ones lost on downed MH17

King Willem Alexander and his wife Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attend an event to unveil a national monument to commemorate the victims of the Malaysia Airlines crash in Ukraine in 2014 in Vijfhuizen

Investigators a year ago said they had pinpointed 100 people they want to speak to who are believed to have been involved in transporting the Buk missile launcher or its use.

The Netherlands announced in early July that it would prosecute those involved in bringing the plane down.

"The tragedy of Flight MH17, in which so many lives were lost, remains a constant source of sorrow and sadness for the European Union", said Federica Mogherini.

"That calls on all states to cooperate to ensure that those responsible for the killing are brought to justice", Bishop said on July 16.

Julie Bishop, the Australian foreign affairs minister, said: "We'll do all we can".

The monument for the victims near Schiphol Airport will be a memorial forest featuring one tree for each of the victims.

"A tree symbolizes "hope" and "future" in many cultures", the association for the victim's families said in a statement.

He and other families spoke at a new memorial near the Amsterdam airport from which the plane departed.


The flight, which had left Schiphol en route to Kuala Lumpur, crashed on July 17, 2017 in Donetsk, Ukraine, a contested area that experienced heavy fighting between pro-Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.

Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai told reporters after the event, which was closed to the media, that the investigation was "very detailed and we are quite convinced that we will be able to find the culprits".

However, the publication notes that the negotiation failed, because Ukraine had closed the airspace up to the height 9454 meter (echelon FL320), and Russian Federation - to a much greater height - 16150 meters.

Poroshenko said on Monday Ukraine is mourning for the victims and said he believes the perpetrators of the attack would be brought to justice.

Nataliya Vasilyeva in Moscow and Eileen Ng in Kuala Lumpur contributed. The attendees included family members of the victims, Dutch King Wilhem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, and other worldwide guests and politicians.

A Dutch father is pleading for those who shot down a Malaysia Airlines jet over Ukraine to be punished, as he mourns his two children and in-laws killed in the disaster.

"No credible evidence has been presented that shows any operational Ukrainian Buk missile launcher was near a position in range of downing MH17 on July 17, 2014", the report says.

Three years have passed since Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, and the case is coming closer to court.
