Vladimir Putin has said other countries must not meddle in Russia's internal affairs as preparations are being made to fly the bodies of flight MH17 victims back to the Netherlands.
The Russian president said there has been an increase in the use of the words "ultimatums and sanctions" when dealing with his country and he called for more dialogue.
Russia will do "everything it can" to influence separatists in Ukraine to allow for a full investigation into the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight, Putin added.
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.
