The Council noted that the train left the city of Torez, the Donetsk region, on Sunday morning. Some elements, too big to fit into the train, are being delivered via motorways.

After arriving to Kharkiv, the wreckage will be prepared to be transported to the Netherlands for an expertise.
The Security Council reminded that the mission of Dutch experts was gathering the plane debris during a week. The recovery operation had been delayed because of continued fighting between government troops and separatist fighters despite a cease-fire agreement reached in September.

The investigation into what happened to MH17 is being conducted in Ukraine and in the Netherlands. Ukraine and Western governments accuse Russia-backed separatist fighters of firing rockets that felled the plane, killing all 298 people aboard, while Russian state-run TV has blamed Ukraine's air force.

"Boeing-777" of Malaysia Airlines MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on the east of Ukraine on July 17. 298 passengers and crew members, who were on board, were killed in the crash.
