UK Foreign Minister mourns over MH17 tragedy victims   


London- The United Kingdom Foreign Minister Liz Truss today memorized the MH17 tragedy and laid flowers at the MH17 memorial with the Wopke Hoekstra, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. 

MH17 tragedy is a tragic accident held in 2014 on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17; MH17 was shot down in eastern Ukraine on June 17, 2014, while travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, consisting of 298 people onboard; the plane disappeared from radar.   


Foreign Minister Liz Truss noted on her official Twitter account, “laying flowers at the MH17 memorial with @WBHoekstra in memory of the 298 people who lost their lives. The flight was shot down over Ukraine in 2014. The victims and their families deserve justice. Russia must take responsibility for this heinous act”, Truss posted while paying tribute to the deceased and their families

According to an investigation conducted by the Dutch Safety Board (DBS) in October 2015, a Russian missile hit a plane over eastern Ukraine. It carried 283 passengers, 80 children and 15 crew members onboard.

In 2016, an international team of criminal investigators claimed the evidence proves that the Buk missile was imported from Russia and fired from territory regulated by Russian-backed separatists.

Moreover, in May 2018, the Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT) also concluded the missile war imported from the Russian territory. Countries including Australia and Netherlands held Russia responsible for downing the aircraft.  

Then, in June 2019, alleged four men brought the missile into the territory of eastern Ukraine and were charged with the criminal offence of the murders of 298 passengers, and international arrest warrants were issued. 


The JIT, whose investigation continues, has previously said it has a “long list” of persons of interest and has repeatedly appealed for witnesses.

Russian officials and Russian-backed rebels reject accusations of involvement, with the Russian foreign ministry saying the JIT investigation is “biased and politically motivated”.

The UK Foreign Minister has expressed grief over the loss suffered by the families of the deceased and held Russia responsible for the heinous act.
