In his address expected in the afternoon, Cameron will announce about the intention to seek for imposing more EU sanctions on Russia. The British prime minister believes Moscow is applying not enough pressure on militias in the eastern part of Ukraine to ensure unhampered work of international experts at the crash site.
Furthermore, the PM’s office told ITAR-TASS that Cameron might announce further punitive measures against Russia to be imposed by the United Kingdom.
British media reports in general confirm this version of further developments. BBC radio has noted that the sectoral round of sanctions is not on the agenda of the European Union.
The upcoming address of David Cameron will be a preparation ahead of Tuesday’s session of foreign ministers of EU member-states, at which London will seek expansion of the second sanctions package.
On the whole, local analysts believe the UK will try to win the initiative inside the EU over Germany and France in building the line towards Russia and bring it closer to the policy of the USA. Three British senior officials — Cameron, Secretary for Foreign Affairs Philip Hammond and Defense Minister Michael Fallon — have made a series of statements on Sunday urging the West to toughen the policy towards Moscow in connection with the situation around the Malaysian passenger plane crash in eastern Ukraine. On the same day, Cameron has held a number of phone conversations, including with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
