THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS-A day after worldwide prosecutors said they had unequivocal evidence of Russian involvement in the downing of a Malaysian passenger jet over Ukraine almost four years ago, the Netherlands and Australia on Friday announced they were holding Moscow legally responsible for its role in the missile attack.
"On the basis of the JIT'sconclusions, the Netherlands and Australia are now convinced that Russian Federation is responsible for the deployment of the Buk installation that was used to down MH17", Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Stef Blok said in a statement on Friday.

Investigators on Thursday said the missile that shot down the plane was sacked from a missile launcher in Russia's 53rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade, but stopped short of saying who actually fired the fatal shot.
