Thursday, 25 February 2016 - 11:03
A UK-based online investigative team says it has identified Russian soldiers who were likely involved in the shooting down of Malaysian plane MH17.
In a report, the Bellingcat team links personnel from the 2nd Battalion of the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade to the tragedy in eastern Ukraine in 2014.
A Dutch report last year said the plane was hit by a Russian-made Buk missile.
The West and Ukraine say pro-Russian rebels brought down Flight MH17, but Moscow blames Ukrainian forces.
All 298 people on board the Boeing 777 - which was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur - died in the disaster on 17th July 2014.
