Russia vetoes tribunal to investigate MH17 tragedy

Pro-Russian rebels suspected of shooting down the plane
Russia has used its veto at the United Nations to stop a draft resolution to establish an international tribunal into the MH17 tragedy of July 2014. It was the only member of the 15-nation UN Security Council to oppose the move.
The Malaysian Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Pro-Russian rebels in the area are suspected of shooting down the plane, but deny such action.
Western countries say there is evidence the aircraft was hit by a Russian-supplied Buk anti-aircraft missile – something Russia denies. Instead Moscow blames Ukraine.
Malaysia pushed for an international tribunal to try those responsible, a move backed by the Netherlands, which had 196 nationals on board, as well as Ukraine, Belgium and Australia.
