Russian government is connected to MH-17 downing - Dutch investigators say they intercepted telephone calls that implicate the Russian government in the MH17 downing over Ukraine in 2014. Prosecutors are making a new appeal for witnesses to contribute information.

A Dutch-led investigation has publicly shared evidence that links the Russian government to the militant group responsible for the the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine in 2014.

In transcripts of intercepted telephone calls released by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) high-ranking Russian officials speak with leaders of the terrorist group of so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" (DPR) who shot down the Malaysian commercial aircraft, killing all 298 passengers and crew.
