An attack is an attempted murder. Clearly, MH17 was shot down by a missile, so it was an attack. After all, whoever fires a missile at an airplane is prepared to accept the deaths of the passengers as well. The findings of the OVV about the cause of the crash strengthen the suspicion of murder with regard to the passengers. In the criminal investigation conducted by the Joint Investigation Team the question of responsibility and intent in relation to the attack will be subject of further investigation.
