The paramedic, working for the European security watchdog OSCE's monitoring mission in eastern Ukraine, was killed and two others were injured on Sunday when their vehicle struck a mine, triggering a US call for a transparent, timely investigation.
Ryabkov said the incident would be discussed at a meeting in Moscow on Tuesday between Lamberto Zannier, the secretary general of the OSCE, and Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister.
