MH17 downing over Ukraine: justice at last

A long-overdue decision was finally made by the District Court of The Hague on November 17, 2022, to find three members of Russian proxy forces in the east of Ukraine guilty of downing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, 8 years after this crime killed 298 passengers and crew members.

The verdict is just a part of the process of bringing Russia responsible for all the crimes committed in Ukraine. Important is the fact that the Dutch court ruled that Russia was present on the territory of Ukraine since as early as 2014, and this will be used as evidence in future proceedings at the international courts concerning Russia’s crimes against Ukraine.

No matter how much time has elapsed, Ukraine will ensure all Russians responsible for the MH17 tragedy as well as other war crimes shall be prosecuted and punished, and the Hague court decision signals just that.
