The United States will not rest until justice is done in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 over eastern Ukraine, President Barack Obama vowed in a condolence book for the nearly 300 victims on Tuesday.

International investigators
2014.07.23 05:05:09

International investigators still need "immediate and full access" to the site of the Malaysian Airlines plane crash in eastern Ukraine, the White House said on Tuesday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the United States welcomed news that victims' remains were being transferred to the Netherlands but said, "I don't think we've seen yet the level of cooperation with international investigators that we'd like to see."

The United States is continuing to review its sanctions on Russia and would welcome additional steps to impose costs on Russia, particularly from Europe, Earnest told reporters.

Ukrainian armed forces
2014.07.23 05:02:35

Armored personnel carriers and tanks belonging to the Ukrainian armed forces were seen moving in an undisclosed location in the Donetsk Region, 40 km away from its capital, on Monday.

Fighting broke out near the railway station at the heart of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk the same day in what separatists said was an attempt by government forces to seize back the east Ukrainian city.

The government in Kiev denied sending the regular army into the center of Donetsk, which the separatists captured in April, but said small "self-organized" pro-Ukrainian groups were fighting the pro-Russian rebels in the city.

Five people were killed and 12 wounded in clashes near the railway station and close to the airport outside Donetsk, local officials said in the industrial city that was home to about 1 million people before many fled the fighting in the region.
