According to the ministry, the experts reached the site of the airliner’s crash and the group was examining the tragic scene.
Earlier in the day the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) mission in Ukraine said in its statement that “OSCE observers have for the first time in almost a week arrived at the MH17 jet crash scene and they are escorted by four experts from the Netherlands and Australia.”
Viktor Nazarov, in charge of the Ukrainian military operation in the Dnepropetrovsk and Luhansk regions, said pro-Kiev troops were not waging “any combat actions within the 20-kilometer (12.4-miles) zone surrounding the crash site.
However, Sergei Kavtoradze, a member of the Security Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic, said in an interview with ITAR-TASS earlier in the day that the government troops continued military operation on Thursday near the crash scene of the Malaysian airliner.
Pro-Kiev troops and local militias in the southeastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions are involved in fierce clashes as the Ukrainian armed forces are conducting a military operation to regain control over the breakaway regions, which on May 11 proclaimed their independence at local referendums.
