The bodies - which have been held in the refrigerated train carriages since the weekend - are set to be handed to Dutch officials once in the east Ukrainian city.
According to officials from Ukraine and Malaysia, they will then be flown to the Netherlands, where any necessary forensic studies will take place.
Thousands of online users have taken to social media to call for the victims of the Malaysian airliner crash to be returned to loved ones.
