Tim Kaine statement on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17

Contributors

kaine new2U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.

“Yesterday’s shocking missile attack on a Malaysian Air flight over Ukraine rips away the last pretense regarding Vladimir Putin’s intentions.  By encouraging and arming separatists in eastern Ukraine, Putin has shown a complete disregard for the sovereignty of that nation. If investigators confirm it to be true that the separatists engaged in this attack on innocent travelers, I hope that the entire global community, especially European nations, join in a vigorous effort to punish and sanction russia for its dangerous support to separatists and their illegal behavior.”
