Russia to consider restricting airspace on the southern Russian coast in light of the MH17 crash.

A passenger plane crashed in Ukraine in 2014 while on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Investigators have found so far no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

"This may result in a reduction in the amount of commercial and humanitarian flights to Malaysia's southern tip due to the potential effect it has on the operation of flight control infrastructure," the letter said.

"Although we can do nothing about the possible effects of these regulations at this time, we are encouraged by the prospect of increased cooperation with international partners as well as the European Union's ongoing commitment to establishing a free, safe and secure air space for international aviation."

Flight MH17 was hit in western Ukraine on July 17, killing 298 people.

The airline is believed to have overshot the civilian airport by several hundred metres and collided with a military jet in the area, killing all 298 people on board.

The Dutch state-run A/S reported on Saturday that its plane, the Airbus A321-200 carrying 283 passengers, was heading to Ukraine but turned around and headed back to Amsterdam because the traffic light on the aircraft had changed.

The plane, a Russian-built Airbus A320-208 operated by charter flight Kogalymavia, was last seen at 17:03 local time (17:03 GMT).
