THE HAGUE, October 14 /TASS/. Two trucks have delivered personal belonging of the Malaysian Boeing crash victims from the crash site in Ukraine’s Donetsk region to Kharkiv, the Dutch Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.

Boeing-777 of the Malaysia Airlines crashed in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17. All the 298 people onboard died. Most of them - 193 passengers - were Dutch.

According to the Dutch Ministry of Defense, the personal belongings include clothes, suitcases, passports, credit cards, jewelry, photos and notebooks. Employees of Ukraine’s State Service, OSCE representatives and Dutch policemen on Monday collected nine cubic meters of personal belongings.

The first forensic examination will be carried out in Kharkiv, most likely on Wednesday. After that, they will be dispatched to the Netherlands.

The search was under way near the populated localities of Rassypnoye and Garbovo.
