PETALING JAYA: Russia’s president Vladimir Putin is morally bound to assist for the sake of humanity, said Sarawak’s Land Development Minister Tan Sri James Masing (pic) Sunday.
Masing urged Putin to allow investigators to proceed with their works unimpeded.
He also urged all Malaysians stand together in condemning the crash of MH17, which was reportedly shot down by separatist.
“We’ve been sheltered from tsunami, earthquake, typhoon and other natural calamities. Suddenly in the space of six months, two tragedies (MH370 and MH17) befall us like a torrential rain.
“Let all Malaysians regardless of political divide and religious beliefs stand together and fight to ensure that the perpetrators no matter who they are, pay for what they’ve done to the passengers of MH17,” said Masing.
MH17 disappeared from radar screens in eastern Ukraine at around 1415 GMT on Thursday, hours after taking off from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport bound for Kuala Lumpur.
The Boeing 777 is believed to have been shot down 50km from the Ukraine-Russia border. All 298 passengers and crew on board, including 44 Malaysians, are believed to have perished.
