The trial of three Russians and a Ukrainian suspected in the downing of MH17 has begun proceedings on Monday in Amsterdam, more than five years after the Malaysian Airlines plane was shot down as it flew over eastern Ukraine.

The trial comes after investigators released a report in 2018, claiming that the four men had helped organise the Russian missile system used to shoot down MH17, a civilian aircraft carrying 298 passengers, including 38 Australians.
