"We believe that sanctions should be imposed because Russia is responsible for this tragedy (Malaysian Boeing crash. - Ed.). Russia supplied and continues to supply weapons to the so-called separatists having Russian citizens among their leadership. We believe that Ukraine's territorial integrity must be restored," Sikorski said.

Hammond noted in his turn that the United Kingdom and Poland are closely co-working on the details of further sanctions against Russia. "We also warn Russia that if it will continue to supply weapons and support separatists in eastern Ukraine further destabilizing the independent and sovereign country, the Russian economy will suffer losses from the sanctions imposed," the British minister said.

He also noted that all the evidence collected today show that the plane was hit by a ground-to-air missile launched from the territory in the East of Ukraine, which is controlled by militants. "We demand access to the crash site as well as transparent and complete international investigation. We will insist that the perpetrators of the crimes have been prosecuted by the competent courts," Hammond said.
