EU Meets Over Russia Sanctions         07/22 06:33

   BRUSSELS (AP) -- European Union foreign ministers are meeting to consider 
further sanctions against Russia because of the downing of the Malaysian 
jetliner, with Britain and some other countries demanding much tougher measures.

   Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius blamed "terrorists supplied by 
Moscow" for the airliner's destruction and the deaths of all 298 people aboard, 
and said he hoped the Tuesday meeting will approve beefed-up sanctions against 
Russia. He called for an arms embargo --- a direct challenge to France, which 
is building two warships for the Russian navy.

   So far, EU sanctions against Russia and its supporters in Ukraine have been 
relatively mild, though the EU was moving to broaden them before the downing of 
the Malaysia Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine. British Prime Minister David 
Cameron said Monday the disaster has drastically changed the situation.
