DONETSK, November 23. /TASS/. A train carrying, wreckage of Boeing-777, which crashed near Donetsk, heads for Kharkov, TASS correspondent reported from the site on Sunday.
A train of twelve cargo carriages, which were sealed by the Dutch specialists, and one passenger carriage left the Pelageyevka village.

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, flying 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-defence forces and the Ukrainian army. All passengers and crewmembers on board the aircraft - 298 people - died. Most of the passengers - 196 people - were Dutch citizens.
The work on removing wreckage of the airplane became possible after representatives of the Netherlands, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic signed a relevant protocol on Saturday, November 15. Before that, the Dutch side refused to sign the document claiming it did not support some of the provisions in it. Besides, experts and investigators were unable to access the crash site due to continuous shelling on the territory.
