The Joint Investigation Team will carry out a number of investigative actions in Ukraine to find additional evidence of guilt of certain individuals in case over MH17 crash.

Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin said this in a commentary to Ukrinform.

"As of now, the investigative actions in the territory of Ukraine have been practically finished. However, at the request of our Dutch colleagues, we plan to take additional measures to find the evidence that is necessary to ensure the prosecution in the trial in the court of the Netherlands," he said.

Yenin also noted that the representatives of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine would meet in ten days with a delegation of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the Netherlands. The parties would discuss the plans of the Joint Investigation Team in the MH17 case for the near future.
