“As soon as Ukrainian troops enter this territory, the militia forces will leave it as it has no strategic importance for them,” said Andrei Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council.
He added that Kiev cannot ensure safety of air accident experts and other civilians at the crash site for now.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on July 21 declared a ceasefire within the 40-kilometre zone around the crash site. However, Kiev recently resumed military operations in the area. The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said Kiev was trying to destroy evidence needed for an unbiased investigation of the catastrophe.
The Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 plane en route from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur crashed in Ukraine’s Donetsk region on July 17 in the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine. All 298 people aboard the plane, mainly Dutch nationals, were killed in the crash.
