Elsemiek de Borst lost her life on flight MH17.
A father from the Netherlands has penned a strongly-worded letter to the men responsible for "murdering" his 17-year-old daughter in the MH17 crash.
Hans de Borst lost his only daughter Elsemiek in the devastating Malaysia Airlines crash that killed 298 people on Thursday. The plane was shot down by an unknown offender over fields in eastern Ukraine.
The letter, which has been translated into English and posted to de Borst's Facebook page, addressed Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, leaders of the separatists and the Ukraine government. He thanked the powerful men for "murdering my loved and only child, Elsemiek de Borst" and stealing her future with their violence.
The letter continued: "Aforementioned misters, I hope you're proud to have shot her, amongst other, young life and future. And that you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror tomorrow morning."
De Borst said his daughter was traveling with her younger brother, mother and stepfather when she was "shot out of the sky, in an unknown country, where there is a war going on".
In the post, which was published on the weekend, the heartbroken father spoke of the future achievements stolen from his daughter by the actions of others, and how she had hoped to finish school and go on to study engineering.
"Elsemiek would have done her final school exams next year, together with her best friend Julia and Marina, she did so good in school! After that she wanted to go to the "Technical University Delft" to study engineering, she was looking forward to it!" he wrote.
On Tuesday, the families of victims came a step closer to finding out what happened to MH17 when the black boxes were handed over to Malaysian authorities by the pro-Russian rebel leader.
