Representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic in the Donetsk Region handed over around 600 items of evidence from the fatal Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 crash to investigators on Wednesday.

Maxim Pevtiev of the General Prosecutor's Office said that most of the items were "personal things, children's toys and games and personal belongings," which were found over a wide area around the villages of Rassypnoe and Petropavlovsk where the plane was downed.

Pevtiev said that once the items are collected from crash site area "we describe and inspect each piece and then load it into a truck." It will then be handed over as evidence to "a Dutch representative" in the presence of members of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe's (OSCE) Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.

The findings of a months-long investigation into the downing of the MH17 flight which killed all 298 people on board are expected to be released in October.
