DONETSK, November 17. /TASS/. Dutch investigators involved in the removal of fragments of Malaysian Boeing, which crashed on the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, are uninterested in the investigation materials the republic’s prosecution office had conducted on the site.
“We are now jointly working with the Netherlands on the removal of the jet fragments from the republic’s territory. We include the photographs of every fragment in the investigation protocol. However and unfortunately, the Dutch have not asked for the materials of our own investigation of the plane crash”, DPR’s general prosecution office told TASS on Monday.
The officers of the republic’s investigation police department together with the prosecution office conducted a number of urgent investigation operations on site of the crash during the next few days right after the tragedy.
“One of the witnesses we have examined claimed to have seen another, smaller grey plane next to the Boeing ahead of its crash”, one of the DPR’s investigators involved in the operations told TASS earlier.
The Malaysia Airline Boeing-777 jet en route from Dutch city of Amsterdam to Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur crashed in war-torn eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk region on July 17, killing all 298 on board. As many as 196 of passengers were Dutch citizens.
The work on removing wreckage of the airplane became possible as on Saturday, November 15, representatives of the Netherlands, OSCE and DPR signed a protocol. Before that, the Dutch side refused to sign the document claiming it did not support some of its provisions. Besides, the experts and investigators were unable to access the crash site due to continuous shelling on the territory.
