3 years on, families commemorate loved ones lost on MH17

3 years on, families commemorate loved ones lost on MH17

The monument is close to Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, from which MH17 departed on its way to Kuala Lumpur. Van Zijtveld said, "Our loved ones together went on a journey on July 17, 2014, and this memorial forest symbolically unites them again". The global criminal probe has concluded that the missile was sacked from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile launcher trucked in from Russian Federation. Russian Federation has denied involvement.

Nevertheless, Russia insists the plane was brought down by Ukraine's military, not the separatists.

Though most of those killed were Dutch, there were people of 17 other nationalities on board the Malaysia Airlines flight, including Australians, Britons, Malaysians and Indonesians.

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

Ms Bishop said "every legal avenue" was being pursued, and urged Russian Federation to comply with UN Security Council resolution 2166, authored by Australia.

3 years on, families commemorate loved ones lost on MH17

A Dutch-led team of investigators that included Australians concluded in September the rocket was sacked from territory in eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russian separatists. Moscow rejects these findings.

"We have faith in the objectivity and impartiality of the Dutch justice and that masterminds behind this crime will be inevitably brought to justice", Poroshenko said in a Twitter post Monday.

Victims came from 17 countries, with 196 of them Dutch.

Last month, the Netherlands said that suspects in the case would be tried in a Dutch court, and under Dutch law.

The commemoration came as worldwide investigators continue their painstaking probe aimed at prosecuting those responsible for shooting down Flight 17 and killing all the passengers and crew. This includes Buk 332, later photographed and filmed in Ukraine on July 17 and 18, 2014. The global criminal probe has concluded that the missile was sacked from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile launcher trucked in from Russian Federation.

Russian Federation has denied the accusations and denounced the investigation's findings as politically biased.
