This was on stated by First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Hennadii Zubko on Channel 5, Censor.NET reports. "The bodies of the passengers and crew were lying in the middle of the field in the heat but rescuers could not pick them up because Russian experts under the guise of civilians were working at the scene," he said.
"For 4 days the bodies were decomposing in this high temperature but we could not take them out; we realized that someone else was working there. And now we have confirmation that there were Russian military and experts under the guise of civilians who were conducting analysis and thinking up what they can say," Zubko said.
Earlier, Germany, France and Britain stated that if Russia does not influence the terrorists until July 22 to provide access of the investigators to the downed Boeing 777, the European Union "will determine the consequences" for Moscow.
