A train bearing victims of the downed Malaysian airliner reached Ukrainian government-held territory at long last Tuesday, but the pro-Russian separatists in control of the crash site showed little willingness to allow the full-scale investigation demanded by world leaders.Despite anger over the rebels' handling of the wreckage and suspicions they shot the plane down, the European Union spared Russia sweeping new sanctions. The crash killed all 298 people aboard the jumbo jet.In Moscow, Putin said Russia would do "everything in its power" to facilitate the investigation, including putting pressure on the rebels.In Brussels, EU foreign ministers urged Russia to use its influence over the rebels to ensure an independent investigation.The 28-nation EU targeted more Russian officials with economic sanctions and travel bans.
