The arrival of 12 Malaysian experts is being postponed due to the armed actions in Donetsk and its suburbs, the Donetsk People’s Republic premier, Alexander Borodai, said on Monday.
“It’s strange that the arrival of experts and military actions in Donetsk coincide. The enemy has seized the town of Debaltsevo. Attacks continue on Donetsk and its northern suburbs. Many people have been killed,” Borodai said.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has ordered law enforcers to stop armed actions in the area of 40 kilometres from the Boeing 777 crash.
Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 passenger plane crashed in Ukraine 60 km from the Russian border on July 17. The airliner carried 298 passengers, including 15 crewmembers. The plane was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
