“Members of INTERPOL’s Incident Response Team (IRT) in Kharkiv, Ukraine have started the disaster victim identification (DVI) process following the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 17,” Interpol said on its website on Tuesday.
After the end of the preliminary identification, the bodies will be taken to the Netherlands.
Other international experts are working in Kharkiv along with their colleagues from Interpol.
Russia said it was also ready to join ICAO-led international experts who are investigating the plane crash.
It welcomed the transfer of the plane’s flight data recorders to Malaysian officials. “We hope that they will subsequently be handed over to the ICAO-led international group of experts whom Russia is ready to join,” the ministry said.
The plane en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region on July 17. All of the 298 people aboard died.
