“We’re highly interested in an unbiased and full investigation and are prepared to give unrestricted access to the spot of the crash for experts of the CIS Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC),” the Donetsk Republic’s Prime Minister Alexander Borodai said.
The case in hand it the talks that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is conducting for the purpose of arranging a corridor to the site of the crash for its inspectors. Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter, the OSCE Chairman-in-Office said in Geneva he hopes the experts will get control of the flight recorder, which is currently in the hands of East-Ukrainian self-defense units.
To assure safe access to the site of the crash, it is important to stop armed fighting in that part of the Donetsk region. In the meantime, a Ukrainian military grouping is kept in encirclement by self-defense units there at present.
“A commission can freely come there and examine the site of the crash and no one will put up obstacles to it,” he said.
In the meantime, the pro-Kiev Donetsk Regional State Administration has set up a staff of its own to take care of the problems related to the jet’s disaster. A spokesman for the staff said the bodies of the dead would most likely be taken for identification to Kharkov or the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don.
