Australia`s prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has vowed ”the killers” who downed Malaysia Airlines MH17 with a Russian missile in 2014 will be brought to justice, according to The Guardian.
Turnbull told reporters on Thursday that Australia would continue to pursue Russia over the tragedy, The Guardian wrote.
”The perpetrator, the criminals, the killers that did this should be brought to justice.”
Turnbull said he had discussed the matter with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in recent weeks.
”We will be tireless in our efforts to ensure that justice is done,” he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Joint Investigation Team reported at a press conference held Wednesday that the plane was hit by a Buk missile type 9M83, which had been imported from Russia into Ukraine and then transported back to the Russian territory.
