Power: Russia Has A Lot Of Explaining To Do After Crash

(United Nations) -- The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations says Russia has a lot of explaining to do after a Malaysian Airlines jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. In a UN Security Council meeting, U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power criticized Moscow's ongoing support for Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
Power said Russia "must stop destabilizing Ukraine." U.S. officials believe the plane was brought down by a ground-to-air missile and suspect Russian separatists were behind the attack. Power called it an appalling attack. Nearly 300 people were killed in the crash. This week, the U.S. imposed another round of economic sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine, including the annexation of Crimea .
