DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION OF THE SECRETARIAT OF THE CMU, July 19
The 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.
The 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.
The 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.
There will be no pardon for the international criminals, nor for those who supported them, who trained them, financed them and supplied weapons to them.
The 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.
