KIEV, July 20,  /ITAR-TASS/. As many as 223 bodies of a Malaysian Boeaing-777 crash victims in eastern Ukraine have been retrieved from the crash site, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman told a briefing on Sunday.

He said the Ukrainian authorities were in talks with representatives of the self-defence forces in the Donetsk region, where the tragedy had taken place, to take the bodies of the crash victims to the Kiev-controlled territory by train.

“There are 192 bodies plus eight fragments of bodies in the train. Now we are negotiating to have this train being let out,” he said.

A Boeing-777 of the Malaysian Airlines en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in July 17 in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk Region 60 km from the Russian border, in the zone of combat operation between the Donetsk self-defence forces and the Ukrainian army. All the passengers and crewmembers onboard the plane - 298 people - died. Travelling aboard the plane were citizens of ten countries, including 192 Dutchmen and 10 British nationals.
