Three Years

Today marks three years since Russia shot down flight MH17 over Ukraine.

Above is a news photo of the Australian service for the event, which was held by the Ukrainian community in Canberra, with embassy staff (USA, Malaysia, Ukraine, Netherlands, Georgia, Romania and so on) and state and federal politicians attending. To the left of the picture are the Ukrainian vice consul and the Dutch ambassador, who were two of the many speakers at the service. (I was behind the vice consul, but Mykola is a big guy, and you can’t see me…)

Dozens of Australians were on the flight, and were killed.

HERE is powerful piece from the American lawyer representing families of Australian, New Zealander, Dutch and Malaysian victims in their case against Vladimir Putin.

The war rages on, and perhaps the media will remind people of that fact as we mark the anniversary of this stupid, senseless disaster.
