Russias President Vladimir Putin has been branded a thug and a liar by one of Britains top diplomats as the European Union prepares to tighten the stranglehold on the Kremlins cronies.
Sir Peter Westmacott, the UK ambassador to the US, said Moscows aggression in Ukraine was starting to look like the wrong call and the Wests firm response to the downing of Malaysian Airlines plane was starting to have an impact.
David Cameron will meet families of British victims of the atrocity today, as he warns Russia has failed to stem the flow of weapons across the border to Ukraine since a surface-to-air missile was used to destroy flight MH17, killing all 298 people on board.
EU diplomats will meet in Brussels today to agree a fresh round of sanctions designed to cripple the Russian economy and target allies of Vladimir Putin.
They are expected to include an outright ban on EU cash being invested in Russian banks, forcing some into state bailouts to avoid bankruptcy.
In an extraordinary public attack on the Russian President, Sir Peter said Mr Putins behaviour in Ukraine had been thuggish, dishonest and reckless. He added: He thought hed done pretty well after he stole Crimea. It doesnt look so good now.
'We have to change the cost/benefit analysis for Putin, for the Russian people, for the government that they have elected here....
Britain is pushing for sanctions where there is broad consensus with other EU countries, including the financial sector, the defence sector and the hi-tech energy sector....
It will be the first time that entire sectors of the Russian economy, rather than individuals or firms, have been targeted by the West.

Just as funny today as it was yesterday.
I didn’t see it yesterday and I was on several times.
“...Putin has been branded a thug and a liar”
Hhhuuuhhhh, and we have a wimp and a liar...pick your poison.
The false dichotomy.
Not much on logic are you?
I see you have simple tag line for a simple mind.
Does the truth hurt?
“The false dichotomy.
Not much on logic are you?”
Okie dokie...logically speaking, we have a wimp and liar.
Well, that isn’t very diplomatic...
Cold weather will start arriving in Europe very soon. Just saying.
Germans expected to be tilting at windmills very shortly —
В Луганске боевики заблокировали мирных жителей, детей используют как "живой щит" 29 июля в 13:52 Tweet Террористы перекрыли железную дорогу и поезда с людьми, желающими покинуть город, не могут осуществить проезд,- отметили в СНБО. АТО news.sevas.ua Террористы не позволяют мирным жителям покинуть Луганск. Об этом заявил представитель информационно-аналитического центра СНБО Андрей Лысенко. "О гуманитарных коридорах они вообще речи не ведут. Если раньше нам удавалось даже организовывать дополнительные поезда в Луганск и оттуда в Киев, то сейчас они полностью перекрыли железную дорогу и ни один поезд не может осуществить проезд, хотя люди хотят покинуть город", - заявил Лысенко.
I do see one word I understand Tweet.
Well look at that, McGruff --
Your Russian thugs are no better than Hamas and probably worse.
Somehow I expect them to make their last stand hiding behind the wreckage of the MH17.
Anyone can post anything on the Internet. I’m just asking for some reputable website links.
That doesn't say much for your understanding, does it???
Like Voice of Russia or Russia Today???
Not at all. Your tagline has nothing to do with truth.
In Lugansk, gunmen blocked civilians, children are used as “human shields” in the July 29 13:52 Tweet terrorists blocked the railway and trains with people wanting to leave the city, may not realize the drive, - the NSDC. ATO news.sevas.ua Terrorists do not allow civilians to leave the Lugansk. This was stated by the representative of the information-analytical center NSDC Andrei Lysenko. “On humanitarian corridors speech they do not lead. If before we were able to organize even more trains in Lugansk to Kiev and there, but now they have completely blocked the railroad and no train can not be fare, although people want to leave the city,” - said Lysenko.
Its actually Russian.
Since the “American experiment” seems to be proving that democratic government does not work (e.g. “the masses raiding the treasury) then we are left with the option of some form of authoritarian government. As authoritarians go I like Vladimir better than most.
