Special: Malaysian airliner crashes over Ukraine
"Some items, presumably the black boxes, were found, and they have been delivered to Donetsk and they are under our control," Aleksander Borodai, prime minister of the self-styled Donetsk People's Republic, told a news conference.
"There are no specialists among us who could pinpoint the look of the black boxes, but we brought to Donetsk some technical items which could be the black boxes of the airliner."
Another rebel official, Sergei Kavtaradze, said he thought there were two of the presumed black boxes.
A pro-Russian rebel who calls himself "Novorossiya", or New Russia, on Twitter tweeted on Sunday that the black boxes belonging to the downed Malaysian airliner had been brought to Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.
