New Evidence From The MH17 Crash Points More Fingers At Russia

"Conclusive evidence" shows Russian-backed rebels launched the missile that brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, according to official investigators.

The commercial plane was shot down as it flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur in July 2014. Dutch-led international investigators said Wednesday that MH17 crashed about 15 miles from the missile launch site.

Investigators say evidence shows the missile launcher responsible moved from Russian territory to Ukraine and back to Russian territory.

Previous reports had pointed the finger at Russia and found that the missile launcher was Russian-made, but the country refuted involvement.

The criminal investigation — which is the most detailed to date — did not determine who gave the orders to move the launcher or shoot.
