"(When another plane crashed) the investigation was much faster. In a week they were already telling everyone the reason, everything was explained. Here they have doing it for one year already, why is there still no conclusion, why they didn't collect everything which remained? There was so many pieces, and they were lying there for so long, people still keep bringing them. However they organised a search and my son, who works at local mine was helping to search - they organised search brigades but.."
"I understand, one can't collect everything at once, but they even didn't take huge pieces for long time, personal stuff too, nobody took anything. That's why there will be no justice. If they needed justice, they would organise. Was it too scary? We live here too. These are their people, their country. It appears that nobody cares. Because they've already decided for themselves who is guilty in first days that "Russia is to blame, and the rebels are all guilty."
As the Dutch Safety Board prepared to publish its final report into what caused Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 to break up high over Eastern Ukraine last year, residents of the village near the site of the crash expressed concerns over how long the investigation has taken.
Some people asked why it had taken so long to remove debris from the site, including large pieces of the plane's fuselage.
Aviation experts said at the time that the site was compromised since investigators had no access to it during the first few days after the crash.
First, rebel commanders blocked OSCE observers from reaching the area, then clashes along the route to the site made it unsafe to travel there.
A preliminary report issued last year said the Boeing 777 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur likely was hit by multiple "high-energy objects from outside the aircraft," fuelling widespread speculation that it was downed by a surface-to-air missile, likely a Russian SA-11 system known as a Buk.
Western authorities have pointed blame at Russian-backed separatist rebels who were fighting Ukrainian government forces in the area where wreckage plunged to earth on July 17, 2014, killing all 298 people on board.
Russia has denied that and blamed the Ukrainian forces, who also denied downing the plane.
Countries whose citizens were killed, including the Netherlands, Malaysia and Australia, want to set up an international tribunal to prosecute any suspects. Russia vetoed the move earlier this year at the United Nations Security Council.
Ukraine's foreign minister said in July that a fresh attempt would likely be made to establish a tribunal once the final report is published.
