Australia has reportedly held a memorial service to mark the anniversary of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 air crash, which killed all 298 onboard.

A plaque, with victims’ names inscribed on it, has been erected in the gardens of Parliament House in Canberra, reported the BBC.

The Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed over conflict-torn east Ukraine on July 17, 2014. It is believed to have been shot with a surface-to-air missile.

The West accused Russia of supplying the missile that they said was used by Ukrainian separatists to bring down the plane.

Russia has denied the claim and blamed Kiev for the air disaster.
