KIEV, December 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament has extended an agreement allowing Malaysian experts to continue investigating the Boeing crash in Donbas until August 2016.
A total of 247 MPs voted in favor of the decision. The agreement was initially concluded until August 1, 2014. Malaysia’s authorities have allowed to extend it until August 18, 2016.
On July 17, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 passenger airliner on flight MH17 from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Most passengers — 193 people — were Dutch nationals. The strike of a ground-to-air or air-to-air missile was named as a possible cause of the crash.
Ukraine’s authorities and the militia of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic accused each other of the tragedy. This July, the United Nations Security Council called for holding a comprehensive and independent probe. Russia’s representatives have said on many occasions they are dissatisfied with how the investigation is being carried out and that the data presented by the Russian side are ignored.
