On November 13, the trial continued in The Hague, where the involvement of the Russian GRU officer Oleg Pulatov in the events that led to the downing of flight MH17 on July 17, 2014 was considered.

It is known that Pulatov has took part in the transportation of Buk SAM from Russia to the territory of Ukraine occupied by Russian militants, guarded it and was nearby whlile missile launching.

However, the Russian side continues to insist on re-examination of witnesses and re-examination of all the evidence presented.

It seems that Russia has switched to a new tactic – to the point of deliberately delaying the case.
