President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko discussed the investigation of the terrorist act committed against passengers of flight MH-17 and the situation in Donetsk and Luhansk regions with Prime Minister of Finland Alexander Stubb.
The President expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister for special attention because the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines aircraft was the issue of not only Ukraine, but also global security. He also informed that despite the obstruction of terrorists, Ukrainian experts had finally managed to withdraw the dead bodies from the crash site. The bodies will be transported to the Netherlands for further identification and all the necessary procedures.
At the same time, Petro Poroshenko informed that despite the tragedy and clear understanding that it had been caused by the actions of terrorists, the supply of weapons and militants from across the Russian border had not been terminated yet. The Ukrainian President emphasizes that further efforts must be focused on preventing Russia from supporting terrorists. The Head of State hopes for international contribution to the given issue.
In response, Alexander Stubb informed that in the course of that day's meeting of the Council of the European Union, particular attention had been paid to the issue of Ukraine and the downed aircraft of Malaysia Airlines.
Petro Poroshenko underlines that it is important for the next step to be the convocation of extraordinary meeting of the heads of the EU states because it is the European Council that can introduce further decisive steps against those who support terrorists.
The parties agreed to coordinate future actions at bilateral level and in the international arena.
