The remains will be sent to Kharkov, where a preliminary forensic examination is held and then transported to the Netherlands, where bodies are identified, the Russian news agency reported.

Dutch security officials were quoted as saying that "a few more days will be needed to complete work to collect the wreckage," and that "the atmosphere on the site remains unstable, so the decision whether to continue work is made daily depending on the security situation."

The plane on flight MH17 crashed on July 17, killing 298 people on board, including more than 190 Dutch nationals.

TASS reported that the Dutch Safety Board which is leading the probe and coordinating the international team of investigators, said in its preliminary report published on September 9 that “Flight MH17 with a Boeing 777-200 operated by Malaysia Airlines broke up in the air probably as the result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects that penetrated the aircraft from outside.”
