Russia meets Ukraine in ICJ over MH17 downing

UKRAINE will meet Russia today at the United Nations’ highest court to address the issue of Russia’s alleged support for pro-Russian separatists accused of shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in 2014, Reuters reports.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will hear Ukraine’s claim that Russia violated a UN anti-terrorism treaty by providing funding and equipment to pro-Russian groups. International investigators determined that these groups were responsible for downing the aircraft over eastern Ukraine, resulting in the deaths of all 298 passengers and crew members.
