кэмерон

British Prime Minister David Cameron urges Europe to do what is necessary to stand up to Russia and put an end to the conflict in Ukraine before any more innocent lives are lost.

David Cameron's appeal was published in the New York Daily News, Censor.NET reports.

"The tragic loss of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 must prove a catalyst for changing Russia's approach and ending the conflict in Ukraine, " the British Prime Minster says. "Russia has been attempting to destabilize a sovereign state, violate its territorial integrity and arm and train thuggish militias. And the world has paid the price."

"If Russia does not change its approach to Ukraine, then I am clear that Europe and the West must fundamentally change our approach to Russia. America has already led the way, and in Britain we have been urging our European partners to step up with further hard-hitting economic sanctions," Mr. Cameron declared.

"Europe should not forget the lessons of history. We in Europe should not need reminding of the consequences of turning a blind eye when big countries bully smaller countries - or the consequences of letting the doctrine of "might is right" prevail. We have to show the courage to deliver hard-hitting sanctions in the short-term if we are to preserve the peace and stability that is so vital to our prosperity in the long-term," Mr. Cameron concludes.
