Dutch prosecutors have released some findings regarding MH17, but their final reports is not expected to come out until the fall.
But the evidence is overwhelming, from the Russian GRU officer’s voice recognized on a tape by Ukrainian military, to Bellingcat’s research, adding to the Kremlin’s responsibility for the grim toll of deaths and injuries in Ukraine. The UN reports that now more than 9,300 civilians have been killed since January 2014, when Crimea was forcibly annexed, after which Russian-backed militants took over at gunpoint administrative buildings in towns in the Donbass.
