A Joint Investigation Team, drawn from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine, is gathering evidence for a criminal prosecution in the downing of the plane.
The investigators' findings support earlier conclusions from the United Kingdom "citizen investigative journalist" group Bellingcat, which said more than two years ago that photographs from the day the plane was shot down linked the Buk missile to Russia's 53rd brigade in Kursk, as NPR's Corey Flintoff wrote at the time.
"The next crucially important step is to identify some members of the military in the 53rd brigade of the Armed Forces of (Russia).who can directly say who was involved in the transfer or operation of the Buk".
On Thursday, Russia rejected the investigation's conclusions and pointed the finger at Ukraine instead. Any suspects will probably be tried in absentia in the Netherlands because Russian Federation vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution to block an worldwide tribunal.
The investigators showed pictures that they said traced the route the missile convoy had taken to reach eastern Ukraine.

But Moscow quickly rejected the accusation, saying no such weapon had ever crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border and that it was an attempt to "discredit Russia in the eyes of the worldwide community".
Investigators also detonated a Buk missile to compare the debris to that found in the fields and bodies of MH17 victims, according to Australian federal police commander Jennifer Hurst.
In a written statement, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said: "That a sophisticated weapon belonging to the Russian army was dispatched and used to shoot down a civilian aircraft should be of grave worldwide concern". In 2016, JIT confirmed that the missile type that downed the aircraft, agreeing with the Ukrainian theory that the BUK missile system was transported from Russian on July 17, 2014, and then fired from a rebel-controlled area. In a sign that some evidence is still missing, the JIT repeated a call for those with information about the incident to come forward, including information about the 53rd brigade, promising anonymity. It said a video presented at the news conference was based on "fabricated" data.
The airliner was hit by a Russian-made missile on July 17, 2014, with 298 people on board, two-thirds of them Dutch, over territory held by pro-Russian separatists. The Russian government has long denied direct involvement in the conflict.
