The United Nations Security Council will discuss at Russia’s request on September 19 the progress of the investigation of the Malaysian MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, press secretary of the Russian permanent mission at the United Nations Alexei Zaitsev told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
“The meeting will be take place on Friday (September 19) at ten in the morning (18:00 Moscow time),” he said.
A Boeing 777 of the Malaysia Airlines (flight MH17) en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed on July 17 in the Donetsk Region, eastern Ukraine, some 60 kilometres from the Russian border, in the zone of combat operations between the Donetsk self-defense forces and the Ukrainian army.
