IN MEMORY of the 298 people who died as innocent victims of the civil war


Maksim Pevtiev, an official at the Investigative Department for Special Cases of the DNR Genprokuratura told us that locals from Rassypnoe in Shaktyorsk Raion handed over about 2,500 fragments from the MH17 crash to the authorities:

People gave us some 2,500 fragments from the airliner… there may be more. Amongst the debris are pieces of the airliner’s exterior, personal belongings of passengers, and so on. All objects will remain in storage until the Genprokuratura transfers them to the OSCE mission.

According our correspondent on the scene, the locals turned over the debris to the authorities before witnesses. Staff from the DNR MChS and the DNR Ministry of Defence were also on hand. They loaded the fragments into a KAMAZ lorry, which took them to Donetsk. The DNR Genprokuratura agreed to resume the preliminary investigation into the crash of a Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, which occurred on 17 July 2014. It reopened the case as locals found fragments and parts from the destroyed Boeing 777. Flight MH17 was enroute from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in the DNR. The accident killed all 298 people onboard.
