DONETSK, November 14. /TASS/. The working conditions for Dutch investigators at the crash cite of the Flight MH17 in Ukraine's Donetsk were safe, deputy head of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Alexander Hug told reporters on Friday.
Conditions of work at the Boeing crash site were safe when the investigators were working there. OSCE observers accompanied them, and they would not have come there if it had been dangerous, he said.
OSCE observers assess whether it is safe or not to work at the wreckage site before every arrival there, he added. He declined to answer when the Dutch investigators would return to the Donetsk region.
The investigation is led by the government of the Netherlands. Members of the OSCE mission are just observers and assist the Dutch investigators to get to the wreckage site, Hug said.
If specialists from other countries would want to conduct their own investigation and come to the site, they must receive consent from the Netherlands and Ukraine, he added.
