26-06-2019 07:00

Somebody shoots down an airplane in Ukraine. This is in 2014. There are 298 people on the plane. All of them die. In 2014, people do not know who shoots down the plane.

Now, investigators find the criminals. They know their names. One of them is from Ukraine. Three are from Russia. The trial is going to be in March 2020.

Difficult words: shoot (use a gun), investigator (a person who finds criminals), trial (a situation at court when lawyers say if somebody goes to prison or is set free).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
