Ambassador urges world to 'wait' for MH17 details

Russia's UK Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko said the world "must wait" for a day to learn more details about how flight MH17 was shot down.

"We don't have the (flight) recorders," he said as he rejected claims separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the passenger plane.

"We want to see other evidence (from the US and UK)," Mr Yakovenko added. "As soon as we get this, then we'll have a full picture."

The school was being used to shelter hundreds of people from the ongoing violence in the region.

ITV News witnessed children "lying in pools of blood" in the aftermath of the shelling.

Scattered books and belongings were seen scattered across courtyard within the facility.

'No evidence' Russia supplied weapons to separatists

Russia's UK Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko has said there is "no evidence" Russia had supplied weapons to separatists in eastern Ukraine and said any use of sanctions would send the "wrong message" to Kiev.

Western sanctions would be "illegal" and "counter-productive" and hurt the global economy, he said.

Mr Yakovenko said it was "striking" how much the United States "relied on social media" in relation to the MH17 crash rather than "intelligence" sources.

He said the decision of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to halt cooperation with Russia over new investments was "unacceptable" and "harmful" to all parties.
