MOSCOW, July 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Donetsk People’s Republic and Kiev are holding talks on a possible humanitarian truce in the wake of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 crash in Ukraine’s south-east, a mediator from the self-proclaimed republic told the Rossyia-1 television channel on Friday.
“Now we are speaking about cordoning off the wreckage of the airliner in order to ensure the access of international organisations to the tragedy site, about removal of the bodies and a search for plane recorders as well as about a possible announcement of a humanitarian truce,” he said.
“It is a serious tragedy as these accidents are one-off events so we must secure all investigatory international activities in the area of active combat clashes,” the DPR representative said explaining the main purpose for talks with the Kiev authorities.
