Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced Wednesday his plans to propose a resolution to the U.N. Security Council to send Russian peacekeeping forces to the site of the flight MH17 crash.

Lavrov told a group of foreign diplomats gathered in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, that the presence a Russian peacekeeping force would allow a team of international experts to access the crash site.

On July 17, Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 was shot down over Eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 passengers on board.

Meanwhile, a battle between Kyiv’s forces and the separatists has been raging over the crash site, preventing unarmed international experts with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) from reaching the area.

Ukrainian military spokesperson Andriy Lysenko also stated that separatists have laid mines around the area where the crash occurred, adding to the danger. Somehow, Russia’s solution is to send in troops.
