Russia: 'Unacceptable to blame anyone for MH17 crash'

The Russian Ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, has said it was ''unacceptable to blame anybody'' for the Malaysia Airlines plane crash.

He accused the media of ''making its own conclusions without the facts'' and said the result of an investigation had to be known first.

Pro-Russian rebels have been widely accused of shooting down the plane, killing all 298 people on board.
