Ukrainian website Myrotvorets blacklists Dutch, German authors of film about Donbas Boeing crash

KYIV. Oct 16 (Interfax) - Ukrainian movement and website Myrotvorets (Peacemaker) has added Dutch citizen Max van der Werff and German national Norman Ritter to its blacklist of those it accuses of attacks on Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, participation in propaganda campaigning against Ukraine, and deliberate distortion of socially important information.

Van der Werff is a director and maker of a documentary about the crash of a Malaysian Airlines Boeing-777 in Donbas in 2014. The makers of the film questioned the results of the investigation led by the Joint Investigation Team. Ritter also participated in its production.

Myrotvorets is asking the Ukrainian law enforcement authorities to regard its report as a statement concerning the two men's having knowingly committed actions against Ukraine's national security, peace, the security of humankind, and world legal order, as well as other offences.

As reported earlier, a presentation of a documentary about the MH17 tragedy was planned in the Hague (Netherlands) in late October. The documentary offers an alternative version of events to that which the results of the JIT inquiry present.

The Malaysian Airlines' Flight MH17 from Amsterdam, the Netherlands to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was downed in the skies over an area in Ukraine's Donetsk region uncontrolled by Kyiv on July 17, 2014. Everyone on board (298 people in total) was killed.
