TOREZ, July 21 (RIA Novosti) - A group of Dutch experts and OSCE employees has arrived at the train station in the city of Torez in eastern Ukraine to seal the refrigerated rail cars carrying the bodies of those killed in the Boeing 777 crash, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Monday.

Four Dutch experts and a group of OSCE employees have arrived at the train station bringing with them personal belongings of the catastrophe victims. After everything is loaded onto the train, the experts will seal the rail cars.

According to the head of the railway station, several dozens of bodies and body parts were loaded onto the train during the day, and it is due to depart on Monday evening. The head of the railway station added that the train could leave for Donetsk in a few hours.

Earlier today, the representatives of the Malaysian government expressed hopes that the bodies of the Boeing 777 crash victims would be returned to their families as soon as possible.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Monday against using the crash for political goals.

“Speaking about the terrible tragic events that occurred in the sky above Donetsk, I would like to say once again how we in Russia treat these events that today happen in Ukraine. We have repeatedly called on all the conflicting sides to immediately stop bloodshed and sit down at the negotiating table," Putin told Rossiya 24 television channel Monday.

Malaysia Airlines' flight MH17 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on July 17 near Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. 298 people on board the Boeing 777 died, including 283 passengers and 15 crew members.

Ukrainian authorities place the blame for the crash on independence supporters in the country’s eastern regions, while the latter maintain they do not have the means to shoot down a plane flying that high.
