The European Union will impose new sanctions on Russia over the country's role in the MH17 airplane crash, the Foreign Secretary said.
Philip Hammond said the sanctions were placed on Russia as "strong condemnation" for its role in the aftermath of the disaster which left 298 people dead.
He said: "We've agreed on concrete proposals to draw up lists of additional people subject to sanctions and to do so in the next couple of days.
"[We are also] looking at broader ranging sanctions, including arms embargoes, access to capital markets, financial services and hi-tech goods including for the energy sector".
He added that Britain wanted "cronies" around Russian President Vladimir Putin to bear the pressure of the fresh sanctions.
Thousands of online users have taken to social media to call for the victims of the Malaysian airliner crash to be returned to loved ones.
United States intelligence officials admitted that they do not know who fired the surface-to-air missile that downed flight MH17.
