MOSCOW, July 27 (Reuters) - Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said on Sunday rebels had prevented international experts from reaching the site where a Malaysian passenger plane crashed in eastern Ukraine.

"Terrorists back to their normal outrageous practice: they don't allow OSCE (the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) monitors to access the #MH17 site claiming Ukraine army is fighting nearby," Klimkin said on Twitter. "Their argument is fake. Ukraine is committed to its unilateral ceasefire within a 40 km zone." (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska, editing by Elizabeth Piper)
