SEPANG: Ukraine is the only country which has yet to complete the background check on its two nationals onboard flight MH370.
Russian authorities cleared its sole passenger yesterday and submitted the details to Malaysia yesterday evening.
A Ukrainian Embassy spokesman said the embassy was awaiting news from Kiev on its request for the background checks.
Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein told the daily media briefing earlier yesterday that only Russia and Ukraine had yet to submit the background checks required of their nationals who boarded the flight.
“So far no information of significance on any passenger has been found,” Hishammuddin said.
A total of 239 passengers and crew of different nationalities were flying on the Kuala Lumpur - Beijing flight that took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8.
The flight carried citizens of Malaysia, China, Australia, New Zealand, France, the United States of America, Ukraine, Canada, Russia, Taiwan and The Netherlands.
“I would like to take this opportunity to state that the passengers, pilots and crew remain innocent until proven otherwise,” he added.
