News agency the Associated Press has posted previously unseen amateur video from the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 near Donetsk, which was filmed just minutes after the crash.


As UNIAN reported earlier, Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on July 17 in Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. There is mounting evidence the plane was shot down by a powerful Buk-M anti-aircraft missile, which Ukraine says was supplied anti-government insurgents by Russia. All 298 people on board were killed. Most of the passengers, 194, were Dutch citizens, while 38 people were citizens of Australia.

The plane crashed near Shakhtarsk in Donetsk region in an area controlled by the Russian-backed insurgents.

The bodies of the crash victims were transferred to the Netherlands for forensic medical examination and identification.

On July 24, Ukraine delegated the investigation of the aircraft crash to the Netherlands.
