Russia Withdraws From MH17 Negotiations!

 Russia's foreign ministry today said it had withdrawn talks with the Netherlands and Australia over the tragic incident that befell Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.


It is common knowledge that MH17 aircraft flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and was shot down by missiles from the territory held by pro-Russian rebels during the fighting in eastern Ukraine and claimed 298 lives.


After years of gathering evidence, a Dutch-led International Joint Investigation (JIT) team last year said missile launchers used to shoot civilian aircraft came from Russian military bases across the border.


Russia's foreign ministry, meanwhile, explained that its decision to withdraw from negotiations with the Netherlands and Australia was in response to a Dutch government lawsuit filed against Moscow in the European Court of Human Rights in July this year.


In addition, the Dutch are accused of being biased and politicizing the issue.


Even the two countries do not want to understand what really happened in the summer of 2014, but have the purpose of making Russia plead guilty and have to pay compensation to the relatives of the victims.



Meanwhile, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte revealed that he was shocked by Russia's decision to stop negotiations on its responsibility for the MH17 plane crash and that the decision would hurt the family members of the victims.


He further stated that the Netherlands would continue negotiations with Australia to defend 298 victims and their relatives.


In a separate comment, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said the country was deeply saddened by Russia's decision to end the talks.
