Australia readies 50 police to send to Ukraine

Posted: Updated:
Australia has sent 50 police to London in anticipation of deploying them to the Ukraine to secure the Malaysian plane crash site as part of a United Nations team.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced the police pre-deployment on Thursday. He says foreign ministers of Australia and Netherlands are going to Kiev to seek a memorandum of understanding that will allow international police to secure the crash site in rebel-held east Ukraine.

He said: "We are ready to deploy Australian police to Ukraine to help secure the site as part of an international team under United Nations authority."
