Here is the full text of the Putin's statement:

In connection with the terrible tragic events that occurred in the skies over the Donets, I would like to say once again how we in Russia relate to events that are taking place in Ukraine.

We have repeatedly called on all warring parties to immediately stop the bloodshed and to sit down at the negotiating table. We can confidently say that if June 28 fighting in eastern Ukraine were not renewed, then this tragedy would not have happened for sure.

However, no one should not have the right to use this tragedy to achieve selfish political objectives. Such events should not divide but unite people. It is necessary that all the people who are responsible for the situation in the region improved their responsibility to their own people and to the peoples of those countries whose representatives have been victims of this disaster.

Everything must be done to ensure the safety of international experts on the scene. Today there are already working representatives of Donbas, Donetsk, representatives of Ministry of Ukraine, experts from Malaysia. But this is not enough.

A full team of experts need to work at the crash under the auspices of ICAO, the corresponding international commission. We must do everything to ensure its full and absolute security, ensure necessary for its operation humanitarian corridors.

For its part, Russia will do all that we can to have the conflict in eastern Ukraine moved from today's military phase to discussions at the negotiating table around exclusively peaceful and diplomatic means.
