    MH17: Dutch-led team to release findings on plane downing

    Sept.28, Moscow: An international team of prosecutors looking into the downing of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 is due to release its findings on Wednesday.

    The Dutch-led team is gathering evidence for a possible criminal trial.

    An earlier inquiry by the Dutch Safety Board concluded a Russian-made Buk missile hit the plane, without saying who fired it.

    The Boeing 777 broke apart in midair flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. All 298 people on board were killed.

    Prosecutors from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine are also part of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

    Ukrainian government forces were involved in heavy fighting with pro-Russian separatists when the incident occurred on 17 July 2014. Later, the European Union and US widened sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine conflict.
