By Annika Breidthardt BERLIN (Reuters) - The downing of a Malaysian plane over an area of eastern Ukraine controlled by separatists has made tougher sanctions against Moscow necessary, the German government said on Monday, a position backed by the main business lobby. The EU has frozen assets and banned travel for some Russian officials, after Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea region and began supporting separatists fighting Kiev's forces in eastern Ukraine. "After the crash of the passenger plane MH17, a completely new situation came about which makes further measures necessary," government spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said at a news conference on Monday.

The Russian Defence Ministry on Monday cast doubt on pictures that Washington said showed Russia had recently shelled Ukrainian military positions. The United States has accused Russia of instigating the conflict in eastern Ukraine where pro-Moscow separatists are fighting central government forces. Russia has denied any involvement in the conflict. On Sunday, the U.S. State Department released images it said showed Russian forces had fired across the border at the Ukrainian military.
