Dutch, Australia name Russia as behind MH17 downing

Nevertheless, on May 25, Australia and the Netherlands issued a statement saying that they "hold Russian Federation responsible for its part in the downing of flight MH17".

On Thursday, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) said it had "legal and convincing evidence which will stand up in a courtroom" that the missile system came from Russia's 53rd anti-aircraft missile brigade, based in the western city of Kursk.

The Russian foreign ministry also denounced what it called an attempt to "discredit Russia in the eyes of the global community", but investigators, who painstaking recreated the BUK missile system's route from Kursk across the border into rebel-held eastern Ukraine using videos and photos, stood by their findings.

Following the statements, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said that Russian Federation was responsible for the deployment of a missile system that shot down MH17.

The Dutch government said in a statement that, together with Australia, it was holding Moscow "formally accountable" for the tragedy, and may now move towards submitting the complex dossier to an worldwide judge or organisation.

On Thursday, the JIT concluded a Russian-manufactured missile was responsible for shooting the passenger jet out of the sky over Eastern Ukraine. A possible next step is to present the case to an global court or organisation for their judgment.

I would like once again to offer my condolences to the families and friends of those so tragically killed by the downing of flight MH17 on 17 July 2014, and to thank the Joint Investigation Team for its painstaking work.

It said on Friday that fragments indicated the Soviet-made missile was made in 1986, but that the Russian military decommissioned missiles of that type in 2011.

When asked if the Kremlin denied allegations of Russian involvement, he said: "Absolutely".

The team of worldwide investigators, however, found that "all the vehicles in a convoy carrying the missile were part of the Russian armed forces".

Wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine, a week after the plane came down.

"Not a single air defence missile launcher of the Russian Armed Forces has ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border", Russia's TASS news agency quoted the Defence Ministry as saying in a statement.

"Ivannikov also supervised the procurement and transport of weapons across the Russia-Ukraine border", Bellingcat said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, rejected the accusations.

The statement added, however, that holding a nation state responsible for a breach of worldwide law would involve "a complex legal process".

He said the United Kingdom "fully supports Australia and the Netherlands in their request to the Russian Federation to accept state responsibility and to cooperate with them in their efforts to deliver justice for the victims of this tragedy".

They have appealed for further information, especially from those who know people among the 53rd Brigade, as they seek to bring criminal charges against those who ordered the plane to be shot down.

The Dutch government urged "Russia to enter into talks aimed at finding a solution that would do justice to the tremendous suffering and damage caused by the downing of MH17".

Bellingcat said Ivannikov was one of the two individuals that Dutch police were looking for in their investigation.

"All points lead to a centralised military operation", Bellingcat researcher Moritz Rakuszitzky told reporters.
