Malaysia, (Daily Mail) 20 June 2019 -  Malaysia’s prime minister has criticised the ‘ridiculous’ decision to charge three Russians and a Ukrainian with murder over the shoot-down of Malaysian flight MH17.   

Mahathir Mohamad accused Dutch-led investigators of turning the tragedy into ‘a political issue on how to accuse Russia of wrong-doing’.  

‘We are very unhappy because from the very beginning it became a political issue on how to accuse Russia of wrong-doing,’ he said.  ‘It is a ridiculous thing. As far as we are concerned we want proof of guilt. So far there is no proof. Only hearsay.’  

Moscow has slammed the ‘absolutely unfounded accusations’ that separatists it supported in eastern Ukraine were responsible for shooting down the jet using a missile supplied by a Russian anti-aircraft brigade.
