THE HAGUE, August 27. /TASS/. The final report on the investigation into the last July’s crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine will be published on October 13, the Dutch Safety Board said on Thursday.
The report will be first presented to families of 298 victims of the tragedy at a closed briefing.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region on July 17, some 60 kilometers (around 37 miles) from the Russian border in the zone of combat operations between militia and the Ukrainian army. All 298 passengers and crew on board perished, the Netherlands reporting nearly 200 victims, the highest death toll in the disaster.
In early September, the Dutch Safety Board said in its preliminary report that the MH17 flight broke up in the air probably as a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects that penetrated the aircraft from outside. A surface-to-air missile that allegedly hit the plane is considered the biggest factor behind the crash.
