Australia PM Abbott: "Russia Can’t Wash Its Hands of" Boeing 777 Crash


Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott has demanded Russia’s full cooperation with international efforts to investigate the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine.

During an interview with Australian broadcaster ABC, Abbott said: "Yesterday I summoned the Russian Trade Minister to a meeting and I made crystal clear my concerns and dissatisfaction with the way this has been handled," Censor.NET reports, citing Euronews.

"Russian-controlled territory, Russian-backed rebels, quite likely a Russian-supplied weapon - Russia can't wash its hands of this," Abbott continued.

Elsewhere in Australia, at the opening of the International AIDS Society (IAS) annual conference in Melbourne, a minute's silence was held for the MH17 victims. At least six people on board MH17 - including Joep Lange, a leading AIDS researcher and a former IAS president - had been heading to the Melbourne conference.
