Commenting on the site of the MH17 crash Alexander Boroday, Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, said that evidence on the ground has so far remained untouched, while speaking to press in Donetsk on Saturday.

Speaking from Donetsk's occupied state building, Boroday said that the scene will remain untouched at the request of OSCE observers, which is why flight recorders have not yet been recovered from the site.

The Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, went down in eastern Ukraine earlier on Thursday. The wreckage was found near the settlement of Grabovo in Donetsk region, located approximated 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the border with Russia.

The aircraft was flying at an altitude of around 10,600 metres (34,700 feet) when ground control lost contact. It has not yet been confirmed how the plane was brought down.
