Will Putin Give In As Pressure Mounts Over Jetliner?

While international condemnation of Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely to increase after a Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down this week, it's unclear whether such pressures will be enough to cause the leader to abandon his campaign of meddling in eastern Ukraine. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 — en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 298 on board — crashed in a rebel-held area of eastern Ukraine on Thursday. According to the U.S. military, the jetliner was shot down by a surface-to-air missile, likely by separatists supplied and trained by Russia. Anders Aslund, a senior fellow with the Peterson Institute of International Economics in Washington, D.C. said, "Putin is cornered like never before, and the question is how he behaves. He needs to do something not to become a complete pariah." Condemnation has been swift since it became clear the Malaysian jetliner was shot down, but world leaders have yet to take concrete action.
