People wearing t-shirts bearing a drawing of a plane and slogans reading ” MH 17, One year in the skies” hold flowers to the Dutch embassy in Kiev on July 17, 2015 in memory of the people who died in the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17/. All 298 passengers and crew — the majority Dutch — died on July 17 last year when the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, on a flight between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur, was shot down over rebel-held east Ukraine during heavy fighting between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.

Memorial ceremonies in the Netherlands, Ukraine and Australia were held to remember the victims onboard the MH17 which was heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. One year ago, the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was blown out of the skies above rebel-held Eastern Ukraine.
