Half an hour after MH17 took off, another Ukrainian curator, @WowihaY, tweeted that the convoy had passed through his hometown of Torez
, 45 miles east of Donetsk, headed to the city of Snizhne.
For example, Torez
in eastern Ukraine became a scene of horror on 17 July 2014 when Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, a Boeing 777-200ER airliner with 298 passengers and crew aboard, was shot down by what is strongly believed to have been a Russian 9K37 Buk SAM system believed to have been supplied to Russian separatists fighting the Ukrainian government in that country's civil war, with the loss of all souls.
Earlier, Donetsk already sent dozens of tons of humanitarian aid to Snezhnoe, Torez
and other towns in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic.

Local media reported fighting also taking place in the towns of Snizhne and Torez
, the two nearest mid-sized towns to the crash site.
Parkhomenko is from the eastern city of Torez
, in Donetsk province in eastern Ukraine - pro-Russian region - that was identified as the crash site of the MH17.
She lives in the pro-Russian enclave of Torez
near the crash scene.
Photographs taken July 17 in Torez
, another small city 10 miles from Snizhne, show a Buk with its missiles covered with a tarp.
After a 17-hour journey from the town of Torez
in rebel territory, the train carrying the bodies pulled into a station in Kharkiv, a government-controlled city where Ukrainian authorities have set up their crash investigation centre.
The Malaysia Airlines plane with 298 people on board, including 15 crew members, crashed on July 17 near the town of Torez
in Ukraine's Donetsk Region.
, a rebel-held town 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the crash site, inspectors bowed heads and clasped hands before climbing aboard refrigerated train cars holding the collected bodies.
