A preliminary report on the reasons behind the Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine will be released within days. However, it will take one year to perform a full investigation which will answer all questions, the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) said.
The report will be ready at the end of the week or early next week, DSB spokeswoman Sara Vernooij said.
The document will shed some light on the cause of the tragedy, though many questions will remain unanswered, she stressed.
According to Vernooij, the preliminary report will include the first results from the flight recorders and data from other sources such as satellites and radars.
