star this property answer text <p>The Dutch Safety Board published its preliminary report on the crash of Malaysian Airlines on 9 September 2014. Based on its preliminary findings to date, there is no indication of any operational or technical issues with either the aircraft or its crew. The damage observed on the forward section of the aircraft appears to indicate that the aircraft was penetrated by a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft. It is likely that it is this damage that resulted in the loss of structural integrity of the aircraft, leading to an in-flight break. The Dutch Safety Board is continuing with its investigation. There is no current indication when it will publish the final report.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK and EU are providing support to scientific institutions in Ukraine in several areas though not as a consequence of recent political instability. The Royal Society is currently funding, through its Department of Business Innovation and Skills grant, two international exchanges involving Ukrainian scientists worth £24,000.</p><p>The British Council has awarded grants of up to £5000 to support the development of partnerships between Ukrainian and UK higher education institutions in 2014-15. Priority was given to applications focussed on energy. The partnerships include:</p><p>Keele University - V.N.Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ecology Department; <br>University of Manchester - Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas; <br>Energy Institute, University College London - V.N.Karazin Kharkiv National University, Department of Physics and Energy; <br>Aberystwyth University - Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Department of Geology; <br>Durham University - V.N.Karazin Kharkiv National University, Department of Chemistry.</p><p>The EU’s Horizon 2020 programme is funding several projects in Ukraine, such as BILAT-UKR*AINA which supports science and technology policy dialogue between the Commission, EU Member States and Ukraine. The EU Delegation in Ukraine provides funding for a number of projects in areas such as energy, environment and the sustainable management of natural resources. In addition, Ukraine is a partner country to the Erasmus+ programme, and therefore has automatic access to a number of Erasmus+ activities in the area of youth and higher education, financed through EU external and internal funds.</p>

The Parliamentary Assembly for the Council of Europe also sent a delegation of 36 which was led by my Hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr Chope) and included my Hon. Friend the Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale) and my Noble Friend the Lord Balfe. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), issued a statement on 24 October in which he commended all those working to ensure a free, fair and peaceful vote. The UK’s Permanent Representative to the UN also issued a statement which called on the elections to go ahead without external interference and pressed the Ukrainian authorities to take steps to ensure that as many Ukrainian citizens as possible could exercise their right to vote. On 27 October the Prime Minister, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), said he was proud that the UK had been able to support Ukraine in helping to make the elections free, fair and transparent and called upon Russia to respect the outcome as part of its commitment to the Minsk agreement.</p>

star this property answer text We are deeply disturbed by recent reporting from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of allegations of incidents of sexual and gender-based violence in eastern Ukraine. This includes reports of rape or detention of women at check-points and incidents of the abduction of women, by armed groups, whose whereabouts remain unknown. The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom has also received reports of a rise in domestic violence and human trafficking across Ukraine. The British Government has been in dialogue with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) around protection concerns, including sexual violence, at collective centres for the displaced and have confirmed that the UK’s £700,000 contribution to the UNHCR to repair housing for the displaced is being complemented by the work of UNHCR protection officers. We have consistently raised our concerns about these issues with partners and we will continue to call on all sides to ensure respect for international law.

star this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) attended the EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting on 17 November where EU Foreign Ministers reiterated their support for the Minsk Protocol and Minsk Memorandum and urged all parties to implement them swiftly. They once again underlined the Russian Federation's responsibility in this context. The EU welcomed the holding of parliamentary elections in Ukraine on 26 October and looked forward to the urgent formation of a new government. They called for an intensification of much needed political and economic reforms in Ukraine, including constitutional reform, decentralisation, reform of the judiciary, law enforcement, fight against corruption and ensuring the rights of persons belonging to national minorities. The EU underlined that a renewed inclusive, country-wide national dialogue on reforms will be important to consolidate Ukraine's unity and internal cohesion and called on all sides to work towards early local elections in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, in accordance with Ukrainian law, as foreseen in the Minsk Protocol, as the only legal and legitimate means of renewing the democratic mandate of the local authorities.</p><p> </p><p>The EU considers the holding of &quot;presidential and parliamentary elections&quot; in Donetsk and Luhansk &quot;People’s Republics&quot; on 2 November as illegal and illegitimate and will not recognise them. The Foreign Affairs Council called on the European External Action Service and the European Commission to present a proposal for a decision by the end of November on additional listings targeting separatists.</p>
