Trump and Putin shake hands (Helsinki)A national defense analyst doesn't believe anyone will be held accountable for the airliner that was shot down over Ukraine in 2014.

International prosecutors in the Netherlands have announced murder charges against three Russians and one Ukrainian in the missile attack that blew a Malaysia Airlines jet out of the sky over Ukraine five years ago, killing all 298 people aboard. The trial for the defendants is set for next March in the Netherlands, though it appears unlikely any of them will be brought before the court, since Russia and Ukraine forbid the extradition of their citizens.

"They're not going to turn over these people," says Bob Maginnis, author of Alliance of Evil and a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council."“In 2014, when this took place, I did a lot of media on it, and I was absolutely convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that Moscow pulled the trigger through the individuals being held up by the Dutch. They mistook that aircraft for a military aircraft. They should have known better, but they didn't. So there won't be any true accountability. The Kremlin will continue to hide any culpability."

The Netherlands has taken the lead in efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice because nearly 200 of those killed were Dutch citizens.
