LONDON, July 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Handover of the black box from the destroyed MH17 and of the bodies of Dutch citizens killed in Malaysia Airlines’ crash “is likely to ensure that the special meeting of EU foreign affairs ministers on Tuesday will not press ahead with generalized economic sanctions against Russia,” The Guardian says in a comment authored by its political editor, Patrick Wintour.
Officials in Whitehall are also aware of the Netherlands apprehensions “that an immediate escalation of sanctions could be counterproductive at a highly sensitive time in its negotiations over the bodies and the form of a crash inquiry.”
The article also recalls Spain and Italy have been opposing sanctions against Russia and “can now point to the benign Russian influence over the separatists (the way that the Western media terms the fighters of self-defense forces in the unrecognized Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics - Itar-Tass),” The Guardian says.
On Tuesday, Aledander Borodai, a senior official of the Donetsk People’s Republic handed the flight recorders of from the destroyed Boeing 777 to Malaysian officials, who confirmed on their part the recorders were in good condition and had not been unsealed.
