The message from Russia was less conciliatory as Cameron was warned during a 10-minute phone call with president Vladimir Putin not to jump to conclusions that the disaster was caused by a bomb.

Downing Street stressed it was “cordial” exchange but a statement from the Kremlin afterwards said: “Vladimir Putin stressed that assessment of the causes of the crash should be based on the data that would become available in the course of the official investigation that is currently under way.”

Asked whether Putin had expressed any criticism about British actions, Cameron’s spokeswoman said: “The president underlined that all countries should wait for the investigations to be completed. The PM was very clear that he would be driven by what would be right for the safety of British citizens and we were right to take the actions that we did.”

Earlier, a Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman said it was “truly shocking” that it appeared the UK had not shared intelligence with Russia if it had any suggesting it was caused by a bomb.
