The Dutch Safety Board’s final report into the Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 crash has concluded that the plane was downed by a missile over eastern Ukraine.
According to ABC News, the final report comes almost 15 months after the plane crashed in rebel held eastern Ukraine.
Prior to the official presentation of the investigation’s final report, the Dutch Safety Board announced the conclusions to relatives of the victims.
The report seeks to explain why the plane was flying over the region, as well as delays in notifying victims’ relatives.
However, the report does not directly address who was responsible, but a separate international criminal investigation aims to address those concerns.
The Boeing 777 was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in Ukraine on 17 July 2014, killing all 298 people on board.
