Thus, the ban came into effect from midnight on 17 July, i.e. the day when you were hit by a passenger airliner, which was flying flight MH17.

In a statement, Mogherini said: "To ensure that those responsible for the downing of MH17 are held accountable and brought to justice, the criminal investigation needs the continuing support of the worldwide community".

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says Russian Federation must be held to account over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, three years after the tragedy that killed 298 people. The attendees included family members of the victims, Dutch King Wilhem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, and other global guests and politicians.

Investigations into the crash pointed heavily to Russia: The Dutch Safety Board found a Russian-made surface-to-air missile system brought down the commercial plane. The global criminal probe has concluded that the missile was sacked from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile launcher trucked in from Russian Federation. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that tribunal would be "counterproductive".

Russian Federation has denied the accusations and denounced the investigation's findings as politically biased.

Funded by donations, the project was designed by artist Ronald A. Westerhuis and landscape architect Robbert de Koning after it was chosen out of three proposals by relatives in late 2015.

"A tree symbolises "hope" and "future" in many cultures", the victims' families association said in a statement.

The monument for the victims near Schiphol Airport will be a memorial forest featuring one tree for each of the victims.

"Today, lighting the candles in memory, we bow our heads before 298 innocent victims of MH17 flight crash".

At the center of the trees is an eye-shaped steel sculpture that looks up toward the sky.

Julie Bishop, the Australian foreign affairs minister, said: "We'll do all we can".

Sunflowers, which have been planted around the trees, will "radiate a golden glow" as well as recall the fields of sunflowers that cover fields in the area of eastern Ukraine where wreckage from flight MH17 was found.
