MH17 inquiry to unveil final report into doomed flight

The wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 that crashed near the village of Rassipnoe in rebel-held east Ukraine on July 17, 2014Dutch-led air crash investigators Tuesday release their final report into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over war-torn Ukraine, in a move likely to worsen already-strained ties between Russia and the West. As Dutch Safety Board officials prepared to unveil the highly anticipated findings of a 15-month inquiry, Moscow was gearing up to go on the counter-offensive after vehemently denying any role in the air disaster. The disaster happened during heavy fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists, and Kiev and the West have squarely blamed the rebels.
