EYEAFRICA TV: Netherlands:- A judicial case against four suspects blamed for the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 begins today at the Schiphol Judicial Complex in Amsterdam.
According to a leaked document, the crash occurred in an area where Buk missile systems were not deployed at the time of the tragedy. The Buk missile system is a family of self-propelled, medium-range surface-to-air missile systems developed by the Soviet Union.
International arrest warrants have since then been issued for three accused Russians, namely Oleg Pulatov, Igor Girkin, and Sergey Dubinskiy, as well as for Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko. They are charged of the murder of all 298 victims on board the MH17 flight. Girkin was the Minister of Defence of the Donetsk People’s Republic at the time with the other three men all working for him.
