Moscow objects to the establishment of a tribunal for looking into the crash of a Malaysian Boeing in eastern Ukraine in summer 2014.

"Russia is opposed to the idea of setting up the tribunal because the inquiry into this incident is not over yet," the Russian Foreign Ministry tweeted with the reference to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov

Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte called on July 3 for the establishment of an international tribunal to hear cases of the culprits behind the crash of the Malaysian plane in Ukraine.

Gatilov said earlier that Moscow had a negative attitude to the Malaysian plans of submitting a resolution to the UN Security Council with regard to the establishment of a tribunal for hearing the case of the Malaysian Boeing crash in eastern Ukraine.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 en route from Amsterdam (the Netherlands) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) was shot down in the Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. The crash killed all 298 people onboard.
