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.
Injured children have been seen lying in "pools of blood" after an Israeli attack at a school acting as a shelter in Gaza.
ITV News Correspondent Dan Rivers, who is at a hospital where the victims are being treated, tweeted:
Adnan Abu Hassna, the UN spokesman in Gaza told ITV News that the Israeli military attacked a school acting as a shelter at around half two this afternoon.
The Beit Hanoun elementary school had around 800 people, mostly women and children, inside when the attack took place.
Mr Hassna said the UN had provided the exact co-ordinates of the school to the Israeli military, so they are surprised by the attack.
The attack is thought to have come from a tank, or artillery. Local media are reporting 16 people have died and 10 have been injured.
ITV News, filming in the nearby Kamal Odwan hospital in Beit Hanoun, observed scores of injured children requiring treatment.
