"After all, Russia has once again confirmed that it is a source of danger in the world," he said.

In addition, the Head of the Parliament said that on Thursday the Verkhovna Rada "will ratify the resolution to allow the conduct of a humanitarian mission in Ukraine by Australian police."

"The only thing you need to understand is that the terrorists together with Russia will not benefit from an objective investigation of the Boeing downing, so they will do anything to prevent it."

In turn, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said that they "have no doubt that the civilian plane was shot down in the Ukrainian sky by the separatists with the help of Russian weapons."

In addition, Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans thanked the Ukrainian people "for their support and the heat wave that we all feel. All Dutch people are amazed at the warmth they feel from the Ukrainian people," he stressed.
