Specialists of this center were involved in the complex forensic examinations of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine for the identification of unknown persons, including the victims of the MN17 "Boeing-777" aircraft crash.
Four experts on dental identification - the Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry Yevhen Kostenko and employees of the Forensic Dentistry RTC Mykhailo Slivka, Ostap Beley, Miroslav Goncharuk-Khomyn - were sent to help their colleagues in the Kyiv forensic examination office.
