On 2 November 2020, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba took part in a video conference with the foreign ministers of the member states of the Joint Investigation Team (Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands) to discuss the process of bringing to justice those responsible for the downing of MH17.
The foreign ministers discussed the progress of the court proceedings in the Netherlands and in international courts. The participants positively took note of Ukraine's accession as a third party to the interstate lawsuit of the Netherlands against the Russian Federation in the European Court of Human Rights.
The foreign ministers exchanged their views on the withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the tripartite consultations with the Netherlands and Australia on international legal responsibility for the downing of the aircraft.
"Whatever political maneuvers the offender uses, the responsibility for the downing of MH17 is inevitable," said Dmytro Kuleba.
Ukraine informed about the dynamics of the process in the ICJ to hold Russia accountable for the breach of its obligations under the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, which led to the downing of MH17.
The ministers agreed to continue co-operation in order to establish justice and bring the offenders to justice.
