A statement from the Netherlands’ national prosecutor’s office, which is involved in a joint international investigation into the MH17 tragedy, said the parts “are of particular interest to the criminal investigation as they can possibly provide more information about who was involved in the crash.” The possible physical evidence of a missile was in the possession of the Dutch Safety Board. Leaked details of the Dutch-led probe suggest the plane was shot down by a Russian-supplied surface-to-air missile fired from separatist-controlled territory. The Kremlin blames Ukrainian government forces for downing the plane. But Russia last month vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that would have created an international tribunal tasked with putting on trial those identified as the culprits. The final conclusions of the investigators are expected to be released in October.
