KIEV, July 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Self-defence forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic have promised to ensure access to the Malaysian Boeing crash site for representatives of the Ukrainian authorities and observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), according to a press release of the three-party contact group, involving the OSCE, Russia and Ukraine made public on Friday.
On Thursday, the group had a videoconference with representatives of the Donetsk Republic’s self-defence forces to discuss issues of the access to the crash site.
