WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama and Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte are in agreement that Russia is still working to destabilize Ukraine.
And the White House says they agree Russia should face more sanctions. Obama was offering his condolences in a phone call Thursday for the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine. Most of the 298 people aboard were Dutch citizens.
The White House says both leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a full investigation of the July 17 crash and said they are committed to making sure all remains are found and returned home.
And they agreed Russia still has not met conditions set by the leaders of the United States and the European Union, and is evidently continuing to arm and support rebels in eastern Ukraine.
