    Russia faces threat of further sanctions

    July 21, 2014

    Britain, Germany and France agreed on Sunday they should be ready to ratchet up sanctions on Russia over the downing of a Malaysian jet carrying 298 passengers when European foreign ministers meet in Brussels on Tuesday.

    Meanwhile rebels in eastern Ukraine on Sunday took control of the bodies recovered from downed Malaysia Airlines plane even as U.S. and European leaders demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin make sure rebels give international investigators full access to the crash site. A report on The Hindu quoting a Rebel leader states that the rebels also have allegedly recovered the black boxes from the plane and will hand them over to the International Civil Aviation Organization.


    Reflecting the continued international pressure, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron in statement demanded that President Putin force separatists controlling the site to “finally allow rescuers and investigators to have free and total access to the zone.”


    The French presidency warned in a statement that “If Russia does not immediately take the necessary measures, consequences will be drawn by the European Union at the Foreign Affairs Council which takes place on Tuesday.”(KH)
