Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said this during a briefing at Government House in Kiev, according to the portal of the Ukrainian government, http://www.kmu.gov.ua.
"Experts involved in the investigation of this case are working around the clock. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) will work closely with the Emergency Ministry.
"We have created in the MFA a special line for anyone who would like to get more information on that (tragedy)," he added.
