    RT's 'MH17: A Year Without Truth' documentary film proved to be of particular interest to the Dutch investigators.

    Dutch Safety Board (DSB), an agency that is leading the investigation into the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in Eastern Ukraine, has reviewed RT's documentary MH17: A Year Without Truth "with great interest" and requested the channel's help in recovering the parts of the aircraft shown in the film.

    RT's MH17: A Year Without Truth documentary film proved to be of particular interest to the Dutch investigators, as it featured video footage of the parts of the aircraft that still remain at the crash site. Upon seeing the film, the Dutch Safety Board reached out to the network and appealed to RT for help in retrieving parts of the plane's cockpit.

    "With great interest we watched your documentary 'MH17: a year without the truth'.  In this film RT shows parts of the cockpit roof, which were found near Petropavlivka. We would like to gather those pieces [and] bring them over to the Netherlands so the Dutch Safety Board can use them for the investigation and the reconstruction," wrote DSB's spokeswoman Sara Vernooij.

    In MH17: A Year Without Truth, which premiered on RT on July 17, 2015 — the first anniversary of the tragedy —  tracks the course of the still-ongoing investigation into the possible causes of the crash, and features testimonies from experts the relatives of those who had perished in it.
