Dutch to issue MH17 disaster report

13 October 2015, Nirapad News: The Dutch Safety Board is set to publish a final report on why Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 broke up over Ukraine in 2014, killing all 298 on board.

Preliminary findings said that it was hit by “high-energy objects from outside the aircraft”, fuelling speculation that a surface-to-air missile was responsible.

The West and Ukraine say Russian-backed rebels brought down the Boeing 777, while Russia blames Ukraine. But the report will not say who was to blame.

The plane – flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur – crashed in rebel-held eastern Ukraine on July 17 of 2014 at the height of the conflict between government troops and the pro-Russian separatists.

There were 193 Dutch nationals among the victims.
