DONETSK, July 20 /ITAR-TASS/. The government of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic will guarantee security to international experts who will work at the Boeing 777 crash site.
The Kiev authorities are stubborn in their desire to shift the blame for the Malaysian Boeing’s crash to the self-defense forces without having any proof except for cheap fakes, Andrei Purgin, the vice-premier of the Donetsk People’s Republic, wrote on the official website of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
“It has already become absolutely clear that the tragedy that claimed the lives of 300 people is the result of an inhumane plot, which could have been masterminded by various authors: the official authorities in Kiev; Ukraine’s hawkish generals or the leaders of the National Guard or the Right Sector movement which are acting at their own discretion. All of them have stained their hands with blood up to their elbows - the blood of civilians from Mariupol, Slavyansk, Kramatorsk, Snezhnyi and Donetsk,” Andrei Purgin stressed.
“The purpose of their plane plot is to convince the global community that the people of Donbas are criminals who do not deserve any indulgences; to get a carte blanche to free use of the ‘scorched earth’ tactics in the Donbas region; make international public turn a blind eye on mass extermination of people who are fighting for their freedom against forces that are personifying Nazism of the 21st century,” the vice-premier of the Donetsk People’s Republic said.
“There can be no other explanation for Kiev’s unwillingness to conclude at least temporary ceasefire to ensure full-fledged investigation into the air crash in which the citizens of third countries died,” Purgin went on to say.
He emphasized that the plane tragedy was the cause for disruption of a regular round of ceasefire consultations in which OSCE representatives were supposed to take part.
Purgin said that the fear of being exposed could be the only explanation for Kiev’s increasing military operation and unwillingness to send international experts to the crash site. The Kiev regime is referring to the danger of military hostilities which it itself is building up.
“The government of the Donetsk People’s Republic has always been ready to conclude ceasefire agreements, which the Ukrainian army has never observed in full measure. Every minute lived without fire preserves civilian lives,” Purgin emphasized.
The government of the Donetsk People’s Republic is stating that it guarantees security to international experts who will work at the crash site and is calling on Kiev to conclude a ceasefire with the Donetsk People’s Republic and create conditions for experts to work at a place where the plane had crashed.
Boeing 777 of Malaysia Airlines, which was making flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed in Ukraine’s Donetsk region in the evening of July 17. All the 298 people onboard died. They include the citizens of 10 countries. Most of them are Dutch subjects (192). There were ten British passengers onboard.
