Secretary of State Kerry to CNN's Candy Crowley: "There is no trust" with the Russians

Today on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to Crowley about the downing of MH17 in Ukraine and the ongoing conflict in Israel.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 Kerry on responsibility for downed MH17:“It basically, it’s pretty clear that this is a system that was transferred from Russia in the hands of separatists.  We know with confidence, with confidence, that the Ukrainians did not have such a system anywhere near the vicinity at that point in time, so it obviously points a very clear finger at the separatists, and that’s why President Obama and the international community are demanding a full-fledged investigation, which Russia said they would do.”

Kerry on trusting Russia:  “There’s no doubt, nobody’s trusting.  There is no question of trust with, you know, that would be ridiculous at this point in time to be trusting.  What I’m saying is that this is the moment of truth for Russia and for Mr. Putin, where they need to stop just saying things, and they need to make sure that they happen.  And that is why, precisely why, what you just said, the fact that they’ve been talking and nothing has happened is exactly why only the day before this incident, President Obama put in place tough additional sanctions on banking, on energy, on defense firms, on specific companies as well as additional specific individuals, and we hope that this will be a wakeup call for some countries in Europe that have wanted to sort of stand back and give this more time and worry more about the trade relationship. This is the moment of truth for Russia.  Russia is supporting these separatists.  Russia is arming these separatists.  Russia is training these separatists.  And Russia has not yet done the things necessary in order to try to bring them under control, which everybody believes they have more of an ability to do than they have exercised.”

Moving new CNN Special Presentation Explores Hope for Vets Struggling with Post Traumatic Stress

Delon Beckett and Garrett Combs came home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ready to resume the lives of promise they had left behind.

Veteran anchor and reporter Alisyn Camerota has joined CNN Worldwide as an anchor.  She begins today.  Camerota comes to CNN after 16 years at FOX News Channel, which she left in March.

“I have been a fan of Alisyn’s for a very long time, and couldn’t be happier that she has agreed to come to CNN,” said Jeff Zucker, President, CNN Worldwide.  “She is not only a seasoned journalist with a great curiosity and passion for the news, but she has a presence on camera that I think is very hard to find.  I can’t wait to have her on the air at CNN.”

Camerota will contribute to all programs across CNN.  A permanent role will be announced in the coming months.

"From the moment Jeff Zucker shared his vision for innovative storytelling at CNN, I wanted to be part of it,” said Camerota.  “I know the power of cable news and it's exciting to be going to the place that invented it and continues to be the standard bearer for stories of international import.  I've always admired the fine work of the journalists at CNN and I'm honored to join their ranks."    FULL POST
