According to the chief of staff of the ATO in the Dnipropetrovsk and Luhansk regions, Major-General Viktor Nazarov, "the military and the National Guard does not conduct any military operations in the area of 20 km around the crash site, according to the order of the President of Ukraine. We also suspended any combat activity in ten kilometer zone around the route of OSCE experts' movement."
"Inflammatory behavior of terrorists suggests that they have a clear intention by all possible means to impede the investigation and give free access to the wreckage of the aircraft to representatives of the investigation that is conducted by the international experts under the coordination of the Netherlands. The Ukrainian side has been making every effort to obtain access to the scene for the experts and provide an opportunity to conduct an objective and impartial investigation, as requested by the President and the Prime Minister," Volodymyr Hroisman said.
