President: Malaysia Airlines guilty should be tried by Hague
Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite believes that those responsible for the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight in eastern Ukraine should be tried by the Hague Tribunal.

A total of 298 people died after a Malaysia Airlines flight was allegedly shot out of the sky whilst flying over the troubled eastern Ukraine. Both Ukraine and Russia have blamed each other for the attack.

"It is certainly an open aggression against the entire European Union, against all the European countries, against humanity. And those who organized it, who commissioned it and who supplied arms must stand against the Hague Tribunal," said Grybauskaite in an interview to the national radio LRT before leaving for special meeting of the presidents of the Baltic States, the Visegrad Group countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary), Bulgaria, and Romania)

The summit of nine Central European leaders will primarily focus on the situation in Ukraine. The president repeated once again that the EU countries have to be more resolute by preparing a united response to Russia's actions.

"If European countries continue to hesitate as they did before, then this could be called as a direct invitation for an aggressor to become more aggressive and move forward. In this way Nazism failed to be prevented in 1930, and now we see the great Russian chauvinism, an aggressive great Russian chauvinism, which turns into attacks against civilian aircrafts," says Grybauskaite.

Ukraine officials says they have evidence showing that a Russian surface to air missile was used to down the plane. It's believed the powerful was used from rebel held area.

Russia raised suspicions yesterday showing that a Ukrainian military aircraft was flying close to the passenger plane. An investigation is ongoing.
