THE UNITED NATIONS, December 19. /TASS/. Experts from Russia, the US, Ukraine, and other countries will get access to the fragments of Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that crashed in Eastern Ukraine on July 17, the Dutch ambassador to the UN, Karel van Oosterom said on Friday in a letter to the UN Security Council.
He meant the fragments of the jet that had been collected on the spot of the crash and delivered to the Netherlands earlier this week.
The letter said the fragments had been delivered to the airbase at Gilze Rijen and access to them would be open for international experts from Australia, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Russia, Britain, the US, Ukraine, and France.
The rest of the fragments that did not have value from the point of view of investigation were collected by local emergency services and would be kept in a centralized storage facility, the ambassadorial letter said.
An effort to collect fragments of the jet on the spot began on November 16. As part of it, the Dutch Safety Board planned collecting four railway coaches full of fragments but a whole twelve coaches were loaded over a period of six days.
