Dutch Safety Board report into MH17 downing destroys Russia’s international image, Ukrainian President says

The final report into the crash of Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, which was shot down by the pro-Russian militants in the Donetsk region in July 2014 published by the Dutch Safety Board has shattered the international image of the Russian Federation.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at press availability, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"The main thing demonstrated by the results of the technical investigation was lie of the Russian Federation... It has delivered a fatal blow to Russia's global image today. This is connected not only with the annexation of Crimea, not only with the occupation, but actually with concealment or support of terrorist organizations," the president noted.

Poroshenko stressed that the report dealt with the technical aspect of the crash while the organizers and perpetrators of this crime were still to be held accountable.

According to him, Ukraine will keep investing efforts together with its international partners to organize the international trial on this case.
