The last pieces of flight MH17 Malaysian Airlines were collected yesterday after officials visited the crash site.

Representatives from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic visited the Ukrainian village of Grabovo to gather the last remnants of the plane and its contents.

Here's what remains of flight MH17:

Passenger's luggage, oxygen tanks and other debris were found, having been gathered by local residents.

One of the representatives claims that the findings "will be used as evidence for the criminal case."

Once they have received all the evidence, a final version of the investigation will be published by the Dutch Safety Board in October.

When MH17 crashed in Eastern Ukraine, 289 people died as they travelled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur in July last year.

Russia still denies accusations of involvement in bringing down the plane, blaming Ukrainian forces for the incident.
