On July 17 2014, a Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777-200ER crashed in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board (27 Australians, 4 Belgians, 1 Canadian, 4 Germans, 12 Indonesians, 43 Malaysians, 196 Dutch, 1 New Zealander, 3 Filipinos, and 10 Britons). The plane was shot down by a Buck surface-to-air missile. An attempt to prosecute the suspects through a UN tribunal, was vetoed on July 2 2015 by Russia in the UN Security Council. On 5 July 2017, the Dutch government announced that the suspects will be tried in the Netherlands by a Dutch court. This decision was taken at the request of the countries investigating the crash of flight MH17. These countries are, in addition to the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine.
