The German government will send two experts to Ukraine to support the MH17 crash probe, a media report said Saturday.

The two leaders "agreed that an international, independent commission under the direction of ICAO should quickly have access to the crash site to shed light on the circumstances of the crash and recover the bodies", a government statement said.
