MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. Malaysian experts and specialists from the emergencies ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) will examine the site where a Malaysia Airlines Boeing crashed in the embattled eastern Ukraine last July, the ministry press service said on Tuesday.
"A joint with Malaysian experts visit to the site is scheduled for April 17. We don’t know whether criminal law experts plan an independent trip to the crash site before that," the Donetsk News Agency quotes the emergencies ministry as saying.
"According to updated reports, they were making up the work schedule and requested our joint trip on April 17," it said.
Earlier, the head of the team of Malaysian experts, Hussein Omar Khan, said the team would get down to work on April 14 and would stay in Donetsk for at least two or three weeks.
He said it was tasked with search for remains as well as material evidence.
A Malaysia Airlines jet carrying 298 people crashed in east Ukraine on July 17 on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Both sides in Ukraine’s conflict accused each other of shooting down the plane with a missile. There were no survivors. Most of the victims, 193, were Dutch nationals.
