NETHERLANDS (CNN) - The leaders of Ukraine, Malaysia, the U.S., and Britain are all pushing their Russian counterpart to take action.

But the strongest words so far have come from the Netherlands, the home of more than half the victims on board the downed flight.

The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte spoke to reporters after his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“It is absolutely necessary and the very first priority that the recovery of the victims will take place as soon as possible. Everyone that won't fully and directly cooperate now, leaves a very serious suspicion upon himself. I am shocked by the images of totally disrespectful behavior at this tragic site. Against all rules of careful investigation, it seems that there are people who are rummaging through the personal and recognizable belongings of victims. This is downright disgusting,” Rutte said.
