U.S. President Barack Obama demanded that Russia stop supporting separatists in eastern Ukraine after the downing of a Malaysian airline by a surface-to-air missile he said was fired from rebel territory, raising the prospect of new sanctions on Moscow.While the West has imposed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine, the United States has been more aggressive than the European Union.Russia's Defense Ministry later pointed the finger at Ukrainian ground forces, saying it had picked up radar activity from a Ukrainian missile system south of Donetsk when the airliner was brought down, Russian media reported.The Ukrainian security council said no missiles had been fired from its armories and officials accused separatists of moving unused missiles into Russia after the incident. Ukraine accused separatists of firing a long-range, Soviet-era SA-11 ground-to-air missile, and U.S. officials said they saw this as possibly the most likely cause of the disaster.
