Where Europe stands on Russian sanctions

Marketplace - American Public Media - Tue, 2014-07-22 04:00

The European Union met on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of further sanctions on Russia after the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The U.S. says a missile fired from separatist territory brought down the plane. Russia's defense ministry says it sees no evidence of a missile, and suggested Ukraine's military could be at fault. 

With tensions mounting, President Obama has called on the EU to take a bolder stance -- Britain, France, and Germany say they would be ready to increase sanctions against Russia, but reaching a concensus could prove difficult. Given a disputed delivery of a warship to Moscow from France, some point out that stronger actions, not words, are needed.
