Oleg Storchevoy, the deputy head of the Russian Federal Agency of Air Transport, said the Russian experts were waiting for authorization from the Dutch side to visit the crash area.

In accordance with standards and recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Annex 13 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation also known as the Chicago Convention, access to the crash site must be authorized by a party in charge of the investigation.
