KIEV, July 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The government in Kiev has worked out a plan to provide international experts access to Malaysian Boeing -777 crash site, Ukraine interim Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said on Tuesday.

Ukraine fulfilled its 20-kilometer combat-free zone obligation but it was constantly reduced by the militia, he said.

“I have no doubt it is the militia that is to blame for the delay,” Groisman added.

A clear plan was prepared that “will allow to make an attempt to get to the territory”, he said.

Earlier on Tuesday press officer of the information centre of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Andrey Lysenko said the government would open the area for international experts once it took over control. Until then, it was dangerous for civilians, including international experts, he said.

President Petro Poroshenko earlier declared the 40-kilometer zone around the site a ceasefire territory but Kiev started active military actions in this area. The authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic said active military actions near the site indicated Kiev planned to destroy evidence necessary for an unbiased investigation.

Malaysia Airlines Boeing -777 heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in Ukraine’s Donetsk Region on July 17 in the area of confrontation between the militia and the Ukrainian army. All 298 aboard died. The overwhelming majority, 194 passengers, were Dutch citizens.
