Here's a pretty good video that outlines the results of the investigation.

Yesterday, the investigative committee identified four people (three Russians and one Ukrainian) who are thought to be responsible for firing the missile:

Naturally, the three named Russians have ties to intelligence services, Kremlin is in denial, and none of the accused expressed any interest in cooperating with the investigation. It's too bad that they are "highly unlikely" to face justice.

What would the legalities of such a prosecution? If the hypothetical defendants were engaging what they believed to be a Ukrainian military aircraft?

Not an SME whatsoever, but I was curious about this as well and as I was researching the subject, I came across this publication from Utrecht Journal of International and European Law that discusses the legal framework and some of the challenges that the prosecutors are going to face.

Given the fact that in most cases Russia does not extradite its citizens, the case will likely not go too far.

If they were going to "bring someone to justice" to save face, you'd have the much younger faces of the crew that launched the missiles, who would be the scapegoats for the people who ordered them to do it. Posting up senior intel guys is a show for political points and public relations, because they know those guys are never getting handed over. This is just a dog and pony show.
