Crash investigators in the Netherlands have shown reporters a reconstruction of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 passenger airliner that was shot down over the Donbass.

Crash investigators attached fragments of the airliner that were brought from the crash site into a specially made frame. The length of the reconstructed part of the aircraft is approximately 20 meters.

The head of the Dutch Safety Board, Tjibbe Joustra, held a news briefing in the Netherlands on Tuesday, during which he presented the final report on the causes of the crash of the Boeing 777.

As reported, the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shut down by a missile near the towns of Torez and Snezhnoye in separatist-controlled part of the Donetsk region. All the 298 people aboard the airliner were killed.

Representatives of Donetsk People's Republic immediately claimed responsibility for the crash, but they began to deny any involvement in the accident after learning that it was not an An-26 from the Ukrainian Air Force.
