MH17 investigators have released a batch of intercepted phone calls between top Russian officials and the separatist fighters who allegedly shot down the plane in Ukraine five years ago.
The calls between Russian officials and leaders of the Donetsk People's Republic movement were published by the Dutch-led investigation team today.
Investigators said they were making a 'new witness appeal' based on the calls.
MH17 was shot out of the sky on a journey from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, killing 298 people, most of them Dutch citizens.
Investigators announced in June that three Russians and one Ukrainian had been charged with murder.
The four suspects were named as Russians Sergey Dubinsky, Oleg Pulatov and Igor Girkin, and Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko.
However, the trial will likely be held in absentia as neither Russia nor Ukraine extradites their nationals.
Ukrainian authorities said they would try to detain Kharchenko, who is believed to be on their territory.
Last year Vladimir Putin called MH17's downing a 'terrible tragedy' but said Moscow was not to blame and there were other explanations for what happened.
