“All-out military actions continue. The site of Boeing crash is located deep on the DPR territory, and there is no need for any humanitarian truce or corridors for an objective investigation of the tragedy,” he is quoted by the Novorossia agency. “A commission can freely arrive and examine the site hampered by nobody.” However, the Minister added, ceasing military actions against the besieged enemy group would be unreasonable.
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).
Boeing-777 crashed in the Donetsk region on Thursday killing all 298 aboard.
The Kiev authorities accused Russia and Ukrainian militias of being involved in the plane crash. However, the Russian military and east Ukraine's self-defense forces denied the allegations, stating that the militia do not have weapons that can hit airplanes flying at high altitude.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko demanded to set up a state committee involving ICAO specialists and representatives of the Netherlands and Malaysia to probe into the airplane tragedy. “Ukrainian military forces did not take any actions to hit air targets,” the Ukrainian presidential press service said.
