DPR prosecutor's office asks Netherlands to remove all remaining MH17 debris

The general prosecutor's office of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) has filed an official request to remove all Flight MH17 debris from its territory to prevent them from being utilized or substituted.

"DPR general prosecutor's office calls on the Dutch side to send official representatives of the Joint Investigative Team to the crash side and officially take all remaining debris," DPR acting general prosecutor Andrey Spivak wrote in a letter to the Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke.

Spivak stressed that this could help in the investigation and prevent falsifications.

The Malaysian Boeing-777 (MH17) crashed over Ukraine's Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. The plane was on its way from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Fifteen crewmen and 283 passengers (they were citizens of many countries but most of them were Dutch), died. According to the main version, the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air or an air-to-air missile. The Ukrainian government and the militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) accused each other of what happened.

On July 21, 2014, the UN Security Council ordered an all-round and independent investigation into the MH17 crash. The Dutch Security Council took the incident's investigation under its control.

The Russian Foreign Ministry repeated many times that it did not like how the investigation was being carried out.
