Moscow residents lay flowers at a makeshift memorial outside the Dutch Embassy...
...And light candles to honor those who died when a Malaysian Airliner crashed in eastern Ukraine, an area held by pro-Russian separatists.
None of the 298 passengers survived.
One visitor called it "an awful tragedy".

They have denied any involvement and are pointing the finger at Ukraine.
