“This is one of the safest places now. Nothing is going on in Hrabove (the crash site),” Andrei Purgin said, commenting on Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein’s words that there was no safe access to the site.
Purgin said the reasons preventing the probe were in no way connected with security at the site. “This is pure politics,” he said.The official said Malaysian representatives were to contact the DPR leadership, but this does not happen.
Earlier, the Malaysian defense minister said the situation in the crash area remained dangerous and it was impossible to reach it at the moment.
He said he was relying on a report on the situation in eastern Ukraine by Major General Bogdan Bondar from the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Heavy fighting in the embattled eastern Ukraine prevented the search operation at the site before the warring sides agreed on a ceasefire last Friday.
A ceasefire in eastern Ukraine is largely holding, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
