According to latest reports, 272 bodies of victims were found dead at the airplane’s crash site, parliament-appointed Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said. As many as 251 bodies and 66 fragments of casualties were earlier reported to be brought to railway station Torez and to be loaded in refrigerated railroad cars.
“Investigation of the Malaysian airliner’s crash in Ukrainian air space continues,” the diplomatic agency said, noting that “Observers of OSCE monitoring mission and personnel of specific Ukrainian services were working at the air crash site on July 20.”
“A large-scale investigation of the air crash is hampered by the lack of accord which warring parties to Ukrainian domestic conflict should reach over guarantees for security to foreign specialists who are still staying in Kiev and Kharkiv,” the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
