BRUSSELS, July 22 European Union governments are
discussing the possibility of imposing capital restrictions on
Russia and sanctions in defence and energy technology if Moscow
does not cooperate in the probe into a plane crash in Ukraine,
diplomats said on Tuesday.
Under proposals being discussed by EU foreign ministers in
Brussels, the EU would draw up a package for sanctions in these
areas that the 28-nation would act on if Russia did not
cooperate over the crash of the Malaysian Airlines plane, which
killed nearly 300 people.
