SINGAPORE, November 16. /TASS/. The names of those responsible for flight MH17 crash in Ukraine will be known no later than in 2018, Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai was quoted as saying by The Star newspaper Wednesday.
The minister said the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), comprising Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine had identified 100 individuals linked to the tragedy.
"They have to call every one of them to investigate all the details," he said. "When we have identified who shot the aircraft, we will do everything in our power to get the court in Netherlands to prosecute those responsible."
A passenger Boeing-777 jet of the Malaysian Airlines (Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur) was shot down above the eastern Donetsk Region on July 17, 2014. All 283 passengers and 15 crew - citizens of ten countries - died in the disaster.
The Ukrainian authorities and forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic have repeatedly accused each other of downing the plane.
On July 21, 2014, the UN Security Council demanded a full and independent investigation. Russia’s representatives have repeatedly objected to the manner of the investigation and pointed to the data provided by Russia being neglected.
Last year, the Russian manufacturer of the BUK missile, Almaz-Antey, submitted evidence that the missile could have flown only from the settlement of Zaroshchenskoye that was controlled by the Ukrainian army at the time of the tragedy.
