Ukrainian Canadian Congress urges to punish those responsible for MH17 tragedy

The Ukrainian diaspora in Canada urges to punish those responsible for the MH17 tragedy and recognizes Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

This is said in a statement made by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) on the third anniversary of the MH17 crash, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The Ukrainian Canadian Congress calls on the international community to ensure that the perpetrators of this terrible murder are brought to justice. The UCC calls on Canada and its allies to declare the so-called "DPR" and "LPR" terrorist organizations and recognize the Russian Federation as a state sponsor of terrorism," the Congress noted.

The UCC expressed condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

As reported, on July 17, 2014, Russian-backed terrorists shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-17 flying over Russian-controlled, occupied territory in eastern Ukraine with a Russian-made and Russian-supplied Buk missile system.
