Few details are known as the team is not expected to make any statements
Representatives of the Joint International Criminal Investigation Team have arrived in Moscow to discuss their probe into the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine two years ago, RFE/RL reports.
Spokesman for the Dutch chief prosecutor's office Wim de Bruin told Russian TASS news agency that the delegation of investigators, prosecutors, and police will stay in Moscow for two days.
He did not disclose who they would meet with and said he would not make any statements on the Moscow visit. Interfax reported that the team would meet with representatives from Russia's defense sector to discuss the downing of the Boeing 777, which was shot down by a Russian-made Buk missile, killing all 298 people on board.
The investigative team includes experts from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and Ukraine and is led by the Dutch National Prosecutor's Office. Their main task is to establish who is to blame for the crash.
