DONETSK, Ukraine (AA) – Alexander Borodai, the prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said Sunday they will hand over the black boxes of Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 (Flight MH17) to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
During a press conference, Borodai said they will only hand over the black boxes of the plane that downed on Thursday with 298 people on board to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) authorities and not the Ukrainian authorities.
