Downing of MH17 over eastern Ukraine: EU reiterates call for justice on tragic anniversary

The FINANCIAL -- “The EU and its Member States recall the tragedy of flight MH17, which occurred on 17 July 2014, and renew their sympathy to all those who have lost their loved ones,”  EU High Representative Federica Mogherini said yesterday on the tragic anniversary of the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine.

“We all remember what happened two years ago with sorrow and sadness,” she added reiterating the EU’s full support to the work of the Joint Investigation Team and the ongoing efforts by the countries involved to come to an effective prosecution, according to Euro East.

 “States that are in a position to assist with the investigation and prosecution of those responsible must fully cooperate with the ongoing criminal investigation,” highlighted Mogherini adding that the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2166 “demands that those directly or indirectly responsible for the downing of MH17 must be held accountable and are brought to justice.”
