Ukraine Plane

There are some issues surrounding the crash site of the Malaysia Airlines flight that went down in Ukraine.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports from Kiev, Ukraine:

Rebels controlling the area stand accused of hampering the work of international investigators. The bodies of many of the 298 victims have been loaded onto a refrigerated train. But it's not clear where that's going to go. And for some reason the refrigeration was off overnight.

In the Netherlands which lost 193 people, the Prime Minister joining President Obama in demanding Russia's Vladimir Putin reins the rebels in.

This amid a restart of fighting close to the crash site between rebels and Ukraine's military.

Barack Obama

President Obama spoke Monday on the situation in Ukraine. Strong words, but so far no new sanctions targeting Russian President Vladmir Putin.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has more from the White House:

President Obama says time is of the essence to ensure the truth is out and accountability exists after last week's shoot-down of the Malaysian Airlines jet over Ukraine.

(President Obama) "Unfortunately, the Russian-backed separatists who control the area continue to block the investigation."

For that, the President blames Moscow.

(President Obama) "Russia, and President Putin in particular, has direct responsibility to compel them to cooperate with the investigation, that is the least they can do."

While not threatening specific action, President Obama says should Putin fail to rein in the separatists, Russia will pay increasing costs.

At the White House, Jared Halpern, Fox News Radio.
