THE HAGUE, July 1. /TASS/. The Dutch Safety Board has completed work on the final report on the reasons for the crash of flight MH17 in Ukraine on July 17, 2014. The document’s draft copy "was handed over to the interested parties on June 2," the board said on Wednesday.
"In accordance with the rules of the International Civil Aviation Organization, they have 60 days to comment on the report," it said.
The interested parties are the countries that took part in the investigation. Aside from the Netherlands, these are Australia, the UK, Malaysia, Russia, the United States and Ukraine.
The preliminary report on the causes of the MH17 crash was released on September 9, 2014. It was prepared on the basis of information originally available to experts. The document stressed the plane had been hit by multiple highly charged particles, which apparently led to the fact that the plane had broken apart in the air. The final version should provide a more detailed answer to the question of what led to the tragedy.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region last July, some 60 kilometers (around 37 miles) from the Russian border in the zone of combat operations between Donetsk self-defence forces and the Ukrainian army. All 298 passengers and crew members on board perished, the Netherlands reporting 196 victims, the highest death toll in the disaster.
