Putin faces anger

, July 19, 2014

Members of the Australian Ukrainian community hold placards as they hold a rally in Sydney on July 19, demanding that Russian President Vladimir Putin not be allowed to attend the G20 Leaders Summit in November. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott blamed Russia on Friday for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines passenger jetliner MH17 over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board, including 28 Australians. Abbott appeared to go further than other Western leaders in apportioning blame over the crash, demanding that Moscow answer questions about the "Russian-backed rebels" that he said were behind the disaster.
