NNA – A top separatist leader in east Ukraine on Friday ruled out a temporary truce with government forces but pledged to allow investigators to access the site of downed Malaysia Airlines jet MH17, AFP reported.

“There is no question of a ceasefire but we will let experts access the site of the catastrophe,” Alexander Borodai, the prime minister of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic,” told journalists.

Ukraine’s prime minister said Friday that Kiev believes pro-Russian separatist rebels shot down the Malaysian airliner with 298 people on board.
