MH17 Memorial Service

Canberra’s Ukrainian community hosted a memorial service for the victims of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on Saturday afternoon. It was attended by the staff of many embassies and consulates including the USA, Netherlands, Malaysia, Ukraine, Romania, New Zealand, Canada and Georgia, and by Federal and State politicians and the Australian Capital Territory’s Chief Minister. The Prime Minister, Tony Abbott was a no-show, as was anyone to represent him. No doubt he wants to distance himself from everything so he can continue playing boyfriends with Adolf Putin.
