MOSCOW, July 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry has noted the importance of UN Security Council’s call to all the parties to the Ukrainian conflict to stop combat actions in the area of the Malaysian Boeing crash and ensure access of investigation bodies, including the OSCE special monitoring mission, to the site. The diplomatic service has said this in a statement on Tuesday after the UN Security Council adopted a resolution regarding the plane crash in Ukraine.

“On July 21, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on the international investigation into the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in Ukraine,” the ministry said. “During the work on the Australian-sponsored draft resolution the Russian side proceeded from the inadmissibility of bias in determining those possibly responsible for the catastrophe and forestalling of any investigation results.”

“We believe that such a high-profile incident as a passenger airliner crash should be investigated with the active role of an authoritative agency — such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the more so that the Security Council had already made such decisions in the past,” the RF Foreign Ministry stressed.

“Intense consultations have produced a draft, which stresses the need of the truly independent and unbiased international investigation based on international aviation principles, in which the ICAO should play the critically important role,” the ministry noted. “The Russian side is ready to provide comprehensive assistance to this investigation, including assigning the corresponding specialists.”

“It is important that the resolution also contains a call on all the warring sides to stop combat actions in the area of the plane crash and ensure access there for the investigation bodies, the OSCE special monitoring commission and other international organizations, assisting the investigation,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
