BRUSSELS, July 17, /TASS/. The European Union (EU) supports the ongoing efforts to establish a credible prosecution mechanism and charges for those found guilty for the MH17 crash in Eastern Ukraine, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said on Friday.
"The EU and its Member States recall the tragedy of flight MH17, which occurred on 17 July 2014, and extend their sympathy to those who have lost their loved ones," - runs Mogherini’s statement.
She underlined that "acts of violence that threaten the safety of civil aviation are serious violations of international peace and security."
According to the heads of European diplomacy, "progress has been made with the repatriation and identification of the victims, the recovery of wreckage and the ongoing investigation into the downing of the airplane."
"Those directly or indirectly responsible for the downing of MH17 must be held accountable and brought to justice, in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 2166, noted Mogherini.
Earlier Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said it’s important to wait for the final results of the MH17 crash investigation before proposing to tribunal. According to him, current appeals for tribunal are made "after a year of inactivity when Russia’s numerous appeals to the UN Security Council to step up the investigation were left unanswered".
