Prosecutors investigating the downing of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014 said on Thursday they had identified the missile used to shoot down the plane as coming from Russiaâ€™s armed forces.
Wilbert Paulissen, head of the crime squad of the Netherlandsâ€™ national police, said the missile was fired from Russiaâ€™s 53rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade.
â€œAll the vehicles in a convoy carrying the missile were part of the Russian armed forcesâ€, he told a televised news conference.
