Russian-led terrorists are preventing access of the international community and
foreign governments to the location where the Malaysian Airlines airplane
crashed on July 17, and are obstructing the launch of an investigation.
Government was informed that the terrorists moved 38 bodies of the victims to
the morgue in Donetsk, where the “experts” with Russian accent claimed that
they intend to perform autopsies. The terrorist groups are also seeking to
obtain large cargo transport to move the remnants of the aircraft to Russia.
Government officially states: the terrorists, with Russia’s support, are
attempting to destroy the evidence of this international crime. We urge the
international community to oblige Russia to withdraw its terrorists from
Ukraine and to allow the Ukrainian and international experts to hold a
comprehensive investigation of the tragedy.
be no pardon for the international criminals, nor for those who supported them,
who trained them, financed them and supplied weapons to them.
Government informed the EU member states and the United States about the latest
developments. The Government provided all necessary technical equipment and
personnel to hold the investigation and forensic examinations, as well as all
means to repatriate the victims’ bodies to their respective countries, but at
this stage the Russian-led terrorist groups prevent this from happening.
