CHRIS UHLMANN: Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel is calling for "swift" economic sanctions to be imposed by the European Union against Moscow.

Public opinion in Germany has turned against Russia since MH17 was downed and a spokesman for the chancellor said overnight that "enough is enough"

Russia had "promised much and delivered nothing."

The strong words are at odds with the weak response from a meeting of the EU's 28 foreign ministers in Brussels who failed to reach agreement on economic reprisals against Russia

And the dithering in Europe is being met with increasing impatience on the other side of the Atlantic.

North America correspondent Jane Cowan reports

JANE COWAN: Reliant on Russian oil and gas, Europe is yet to make good on a threat to impose harsher sanctions on Russia, despite pressure from the US.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: Sanctions against the Russia economy; we could grind it into the ground. It's no larger than the size of the Italian economy.

JANE COWAN: The Republican senator Lindsey Graham.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: I want the Russian people to feel pain in response to the pain they've caused. I want to put sanctions on their economy so they understand that what Putin's doing is not good for them long-term and the way to get to Putin is to, to basically make the Russian people pay a price for supporting this guy. They're part of the problem as far as I'm concerned

I'd like to see president Obama call Samantha Powers, who's a good UN Ambassador, to draft a resolution condemning Russia for the part they played in this, and start naming Putin individually to be subject for sanctions. Do all these things then call him and say, if you continue to dismember the Ukraine, more will be coming your way.

INTERVIEWER: You said more will be coming your way not war, right?

LINDSEY GRAHAM: Yeah, yeah, not war. More.

JANE COWAN: The impact of restricting trade with Russia would be far from even throughout the 28-nation European Union.

Europe's biggest economy, Germany, has the most to lose, accounting for one third of sales to Russia.

More than 6,000 German firms do business in Russia with 300,000 German jobs dependent on trade with it.

JOHN HERBST: I think Europe has been very weak on sanctions and Mr Putin has counted on that.

JANE COWAN: Former US ambassador to Ukraine, John Herbst.

JOHN HERBST: If Europe were to join us with the strong sanctions we made last Wednesday, perhaps the two of us together, Europe, the EU and the United States were to target the Russian financial sector; Mr Putin would have a serious choice to make: between the economic security of his country and aggression in Ukraine.

JANE COWAN: Members of German chancellor Angela Merkel's ruling party and some in the German opposition are suggesting Russia should lose the right to host the next World Cup if Moscow fails to cooperate with the inquiry into the downing of MH17.

The Dutch Safety Board has taken charge of the international investigation into the crash, saying it will look at whether the Boeing 777's black box flight data recorders have been tampered with.

Dutch investigators say they'll conduct separate investigations into the decision-making processes behind flight routes.
