UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — Representatives of Ukraine and a handful of other countries are currently meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly to discuss the 2014 crash of Malaysian flight MH17, a Ukrainian official told Sputnik on Tuesday.
The official confirmed the meeting was taking place and was attended by Kiev administration officials, including the Deputy Head of Administration.
A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said earlier in September that Western efforts to set up an international tribunal on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in east Ukraine is premature and counterproductive.
Flight MH17 went down in the Donetsk region on July 17, 2014, while traveling to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. All 298 passengers and crew on board, the majority of whom were Dutch citizens, perished in the accident.
