Relatives of the victims of flight MH17 which crashed in Ukraine in 2014 have on Friday called on the European Commission to do more to investigate the downing of the aircraft.The relatives in a letter addressed to the EU Foreign Policy Chief, Frederica Mogherini, stated that the EU should pressurise Russia, Ukraine and the U.S. to hand over radar and satellite images to investigators.

They said “298 people were brutally killed and the investigations were clearly hindered.”

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by a missile in the airspace over the Donetsk region on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people aboard.
