KIEV, July 20 (Reuters) - A pro-Russian rebel who calls himself "Novorossiya", or New Russia, on Twitter tweeted on Sunday that the black boxes belonging to the downed Malaysian airliner had been brought to Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.

Sergei Kavtaradze, a senior official of the pro-Russian rebels' self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR), declined to comment on the report, which was also carried on Russia's Interfax news agency.
