Poroshenko said in an interview with CNN that a question on the prosecution of the terrorists who killed innocent people should be raised after the investigation of all the circumstances of the crash of the Malaysia Airlines aircraft, which took place a year ago in the Donbas, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.
