Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is expected to meet with the Malaysian Minister of Defense, Hishamuddin Hussein, who flew to Kiev last night, accompanied by the first group of 30 experts and police carrying out further investigation of the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, the press service of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine announced Monday.

MOSCOW, September 8 (RIA Novosti) – Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is expected to meet with the Malaysian Minister of Defense, Hishamuddin Hussein, who flew to Kiev last night, accompanied by the first group of 30 experts and police carrying out further investigation of the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, the press service of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine announced Monday.

A group of Malaysian experts has arrived in Kiev and is supposed to meet with Yatsenyuk, the press service told RIA Novosti Monday.

At the beginning of August, Kiev and Kuala Lumpur signed an agreement allowing up to 90 non-military Malaysian experts to investigate the crash. However, the work was soon interrupted for the safety reasons, and on August 12, the experts returned to Malaysia.

Flight MH17, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed on July 17 in the Donetsk region, killing all 298 people on board. The reason for the crash is a matter of debate. Kiev accuses independence supporters in eastern Ukraine of shooting it down but cannot provide any evidence. The local militia leaders insist that they do not have weapons capable of shooting down a plane flying at 32,000 feet.

A preliminary report on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine is expected to be issued on September 9.
