Top German Aviation Lawyer Has Rock Solid Case Against Ukraine Over MH17

Regardless of who actually pulled the trigger, Ukraine is a sovereign state, and as such, assumes all rights and responsibilities for controlling the airspace above its territory.

Under Article 9 of the Chicago Convention of 1949, to which Ukraine is a signatory, it is the responsibility of governments, in the event of armed conflict within their territory, to close the airspace above the conflict zone.

Not only did Ukraine fail to do this, Ukrainian air traffic control - whether through negligence or intention - directed MH17 to fly over Donbass where it met its terrible end.

Prof. Giemulla is representing the families of 3 German citizens killed on the airliner in their claims against Ukraine for failing to safeguard MH17

The legal case seems clear. However, the evidence clearly shows that the Russians had nothing to do with the incident, and that MH17 was shot down with an air-to-air missile. The material showing a BUK missile system on the ground in rebel held areas is a concoction issued by the Ukraine Government.
