Moscow (dpa) - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko marked the third anniversary Monday of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 with renewed condemnation of Russia.

The Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was downed by a missile believed to have been fired by Russian-aligned rebels in eastern Ukraine. All 298 people aboard the flight - most of them Dutch citizens - were killed.

"This insolent crime would not have happened if it were not for Russian aggression, a Russian installation and a Russian rocket brought from the territory of Russia," Poroshenko said in a statement.

"Our responsibility before the victims as well as future generations is to prove to the aggressor and terrorist that it is impossible to escape liability for all the crimes it has committed," the Ukrainian leader said.

Poroshenko expressed confidence in the "impartiality" of the justice system of the Netherlands, which has led the international investigation into the incident.

Russian authorities have pinned the blame on the Ukrainian military, which has been battling pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine for more than three years.

Relatives of the victims were set to gather near Amsterdam‘s Schiphol Airport on Monday at a "living memorial," where 298 trees have been planted to honour each person who died in the crash, according to reports.

In Malaysia, Transport Minister Dato Sri Liow Tiong promised justice for the victims and said that July 17, 2014 "will always be in our memory."

"Three years may have passed, but the memories of the passengers and crew on-board will always be with all of us and they will be remembered dearly. Ten nations have also lost sons and daughters to this tragedy," he said in a statement.
