Obama Pushes For Stronger Action Against Russia After Crash
Jul. 18, 2014
(Washington, DC) -- President Obama says the jetliner disaster in Ukraine Thursday should push Western nations to take stronger action against Russia for meddling in Ukrainian affairs. Obama and other U.S. officials believe the Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down by a missile, and Ukrainian rebels wouldn't have the expertise to do that without Russian help. Meanwhile, international observers are being prevented by rebel gunmen from getting to the crash site of the Malaysian airliner.
