July 21 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote reports on mounting international pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin over the downing of flight MH17 in Ukraine. He speaks on “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

Russia and vladimir putin this monday?

You have to watch very carefully what he says over the next 24 hours.

He made a statement yesterday where he said the separatists should absolutely cooperate with international investigators and ensure their security, and that going forward, diplomatic means should be used exclusively, that there should be no more fighting.

Those are the kinds of things that western leaders want to hear.

There was also that comment from the german foreign ministry, where it was president clinton pot -- that it was president putin's last opportunity.

The idea is that they are to be taken to a ukrainian site that is under control of the government, unlike the crash site, which is under the control of the separatists.

Remember, the majority of the people were dutch, so they could be identified outside the country.

Ryan chilcote, thank you.

Our editor of foreign affairs, also the council on foreign relations.

We also have john malloy.

I want to start with gideon.

There are ways to dissect what is going on in ukraine.
