MOSCOW, July 6 /TASS/. Representatives of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office said after meeting Dutch prosecutors in Moscow that they were ready for effective cooperation with the Dutch colleagues in investigating the circumstances of the Malaysian Boeing crash over Ukraine, Alexander Kurennoy from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has said.
The Russian side received the Dutch colleagues in Moscow on July 6. Its main aim was to fulfil the Netherland’s request for legal assistance as promptly and thoroughly as possible.
"The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office is planning to continue providing all the necessary legal assistance required for full and objective criminal investigation into the circumstances of the Malaysian Boeing crash in the sky over Ukraine," Kurennoy stressed.
Representatives of the Dutch National Prosecutor’s Office visited the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office the other day for negotiations on cooperation in leading a criminal investigation into the MH17 Boeing crash, which took place over Ukraine on July 17, 2014.
"During the talks Russia reconfirmed it was ready to conduct maximum effective operational cooperation with the Netherlands with an aim to establish the circumstances of that terrible tragedy," Kurennoy said.
He added that the Russian Prosecutor’s Office has handed over a huge amount of materials and documents related to the crash to the Dutch side following the request of the Dutch National Prosecutor’s Office for legal assistance since November 2014 as part of international criminal investigation into the MH17 crash.
The Joint International Criminal Investigation Team MH17 consists of experts from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine. The Dutch National Prosecutor’s Office is leading the team whose main task is to establish who is to blame for the MH17 crash. The Joint International Criminal Investigation Team is supposed to submit its preliminary findings on the weapons used to down the plane and the exact place from where the missile was launched.
The Boeing-777 (Boeing 777-200ER) of Malaysia Airlines, which was on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed over Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. All the 283 passengers and the 15-member crew - the citizens of 10 states - died in the crash.
