The UN Security Council is expected to consider today, a resolution demanding that pro-Russian separatists provide "full and unrestricted access" to the crash site of a downed jet in Ukraine.

The document, proposed by Australia and co-sponsored by countries like France, also calls on all actors in the region to fully cooperate in an international probe of the incident.

A vote was set for next morning, Sri Lankan time.

Russia, as a permanent member of the Security Council, has the right to exercise its veto power to scrap the resolution.
