Dutch Investigators Of MH17 Crash In Moscow For Two-Day Visit

Representatives of the Joint International Criminal Investigation Team have arrived in Moscow to discuss their probe into the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine two years ago.

Team spokesman Wim de Bruin told TASS on July 5 that the delegation of investigators, prosecutors, and police will stay in Moscow for two days to discuss the downing of the Boeing 777, which investigators have said was shot down by a Russian-made Buk missile, killing all 298 people on board.

He did not disclose who he would meet with and said he would not make any statements on the Moscow visit. Interfax reported that the team would meet with representatives from Russia's defense sector.

The investigative team includes experts from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and Ukraine and is led by the Dutch National Prosecutor's Office. Their main task is to establish who is to blame for the crash.
