KIEV, October 13. /TASS/. Ukraine intends to send experts to the Malaysia Airlines Аlight MH17 crash site near Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, on Monday, the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine told TASS.
At present, the OSCE has no exact information on who will be included in the group or how it will be transported to the jet crash site.
Earlier, the Dutch TV channel HOC said Ukraine services would deal with searching for the remnants and personal belongings of the victims of the air crash near Donetsk.
The channel said the Netherlands and Ukraine had reached an agreement to this effect. The search will start on Monday, the channel said.
However, it remains unclear who will carry out the search. The Dutch television names this service as SES, i.e. the sanitary and epidemiological service. This service conducted the rescue works in the first days of the crash and was sharply criticized, including by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, for careless treatment of the victims’ remnants, the Dutch TV channel said.
The Boeing 777-200 of the Malaysia Airlines en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on July 17 in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk Region, some 60 km (over 37 miles) from the Russian border, in the zone of combat operations between the Donetsk self-defense forces and the Ukrainian army. All the 283 passengers and 15 crew onboard the aircraft died.
Malaysia Airlines said 193 of those onboard the plane were Dutch, 43 were Malaysian, including 15 crew, and 27 were Australian.
