Dutch prosecutors have identified 100 people suspected of involvement in the crash of the plane of Malaysian Airlines downed in the east of Ukraine in July 2014.

This was said in the Netherlands during the presentation of a report on results of technical investigation into reasons of the air crash, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

It was said there were 100 suspects or people who could be linked this or that way with the downing of the place or transportation of the Buk missile launcher. The investigation has identified people who either operated the Buk missile launcher or organized its delivery to the launch site.

A prosecutor said not all of them were suspects in the case.

The investigation has yet to establish precisely who ordered to down the plane. The investigation has to establish whether it was a decision made by the team of the Buk missile launcher or they executed somebody's order.

A representatives of the investigation said there would be a separate investigation to establish that.

Fred Westerbeke, the chief investigator with the Dutch National Prosecutors' Office, said the international investigation team could not make statements about Russia's involvement in the crash of the plane.

"We cannot say more than the Buk arrived from the Russian Federation and that it returned back," he said.

He added that the case will go to a court by all means.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Dutch prosecutors have established that Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in July 2014 in Donetsk Region was downed with a missile fired from a Buk missile launcher brought from Russia.
