"There was a meeting with the Dutch delegation on the sidelines of the [OSCE] Parliamentary Assembly. [The Dutch side] repeatedly speaks about the need for a tribunal to deal with the MH17 issue. The international commission [including Dutch experts]… is expected to arrive in Moscow in a week or two in order to establish direct contact with the Russian representatives, who are expected to be brought to the investigation of this incident," Kovalev told reporters.
According to Kovalev, the head of the Dutch delegation reported about this upcoming visit.
According to the lawmaker, Russia has sent its materials to the JIT.
"I have a feeling that our conclusions have not been taken into account," Kovalev added.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed with 298 people on board on July 17, 2014, in eastern Ukraine, while en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, leaving no survivors. Kiev and independence supporters in Donbas have blamed each other for the downing of the MH17 plane.
Dutch investigators published a report in October 2015 claiming that the Malaysia Airlines aircraft appeared to have been downed using a Russia-produced Buk surface-to-air missile system. The report did not identify the exact location from where the missile was fired. The investigators also slammed Kiev for closing its eyes to apparent threats to civil aviation.
