Nearly 300 people died when Malaysia Airlines 17 crashed on July 17, 2014 in a region seeing high-intensity combat between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russian separatists. A propaganda battle has been raging ever since, with both sides pointing the finger of blame at the other. The Dutch investigation into the cause of the crash is floundering. The families of the dead are caught in the crossfire of this "information war", with no end in sight to their suffering.
