Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott discussed the need to ensure that international recovery experts can work safely at the MH17 airliner crash site with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin said.
At least 27 Australians were on the plane from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that was downed last week over part of Ukraine.
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
