Liz calls for tougher sanctions on Russia after flight disaster

[25/07/2014 | No comment]

pic 3On Monday 21 July the Prime Minister made a statement in the House of Commons on the tragic downing of Flight MH17 in Ukraine.

He joined me in sending condolences to the family of 20 year old Richard Mayne, who was from Leicester West and who lost his life in the disaster.

I believe that Europe must send a far stronger message to Russia about what has happened and President Putin’s responsibility for putting it right. I pressed David Cameron on how other EU leaders have responded to his proposals for additional sanctions on Russia and how likely they are to agree to them.
