The Trilateral Contact Group consisting of senior representatives of Ukraine, Russia and OSCE held another round of video consultations with self-defense fighters on Tuesday, the OSCE said in a statement.
During these consultations, including the latest meeting on July 22, it had been possible to achieve progress on a number of problems related to the airliner’s crash, the statement said.
The sides agreed on initiating repatriation of most of the bodies of the plane crash victims and handing over the airplane’s black boxes to international experts, the OSCE said.
“The Trilateral Contact Group noted with satisfaction that it had been able to be instrumental in the easing of tension and in solving a number of problems, which had arisen out of the airplane crash of 17 July 2014.”
