KIEV, July 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Monday he had given instructions to invite Russian experts to join a probe into a Malaysian airliner crash in the Donetsk Region in east Ukraine.

Poroshenko said during his visit to the Malaysian embassy in Kiev that immediately after the crash he had invited representatives of the countries whose nationals had been killed in the crash - the Netherlands, Malaysia, Germany, the UK, Australia and the USA - to take part in the accident investigation.
