Victim’s parents visit crash site

26 Jul, 2014

The parents of Fatima Dyczynski, a 25 year-old woman from Perth, Australia who died in the crash, visit the crash site.  It is believed they are the only family members to have traveled to the site to visit the scene. George Dyczynski wears a white t-shirt with picture of his daughter and the words “We love you” printed on it. Angela Dczynski says she wants to meet the commander of the region, which is controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott warned that it would be “ill-advised” for relatives to travel to the war-torn site. Mrs. Dyczynski:
