Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 (MH17/MAS17) was scheduled a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17, 2014 when it was Believed to be shot down on Hrabove in Donetsk Oblast, Eastern Ukraine just 40km between the Ukraine-Russian border. The flight contained 283 Passengers and 15 crew members all dead. Now Ukrainian security services said they intercepted two phone conversations in which pro-Russian separatists discuss having just shot down a civilian plane with Russian intelligence officers. The separatists denied the recorded talks were related to the crash of MAS17.
Suspicion for the shooting down of Flight MH17 is now sharply focused on forces under the command of pro-Russian rebel commander, Igor Girkin. Read more on this here.
The flight was believed to be brought down by a Rebel group but further evidence proves that wrong. The missiles they were using needed highly trained people to handle properly. Also it was confirmed that Kiev, Russia were the ones who deployed the missiles into Ukraine ahead of the crash of flight MH 17.
“According to the Russian Defense Ministry information, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine located in the crash-site are equipped with anti-aircraft missile systems of “Buk-M1” … These complexes in their tactical and technical characteristics are capable of detecting air targets at ranges of up to 160 kilometers and hit them at full altitude range at a distance of over 30 kilometers,” – the ministry’s statement reads as cited by Ria.

What does this tell us? It shows that it was not rebels but more likely terrorists which the Russia seems to support. with this knowledge the U.N. held Ukraine’s dictator Vladimir Putin in Isolation till further notice.
“While the Ukrainian government is working closely with the West to counter Russia, it hasn’t so far heeded American calls for a ceasefire. That may be partly because its forces are making progress against the separatists and Kiev is unwilling to give up the initiative.”[s]
Barack Obama said earlier that the downing of MH17 should be “a wake-up call” to Europe to get serious about confronting Russia over Ukraine after EU leaders have proved reluctant to impose tought sanctions.[s]
European Union leaders decided in recent days to expand the penalties to a broad new category of people and companies. But the apparent shooting down of a plane carrying more than 200 EU citizens has intensified a desire to act quickly and forcefully, including sanctions against oligarchs with ties to the Kremlin.[s]
The crash site has been very hard trying to which is why European and other investigators haven’t had proper intel on the crash. As far as we know the United Nations is doing all it can to sort this out.

Prince William on the crash of MH17
“I know that I speak for all of us here when I acknowledge our deep sadness following yesterday’s disaster in the Ukraine. For all of us who have lost fellow countrymen and women in the tragedy, words cannot do justice to our sense of loss. For Australians, and for our Malaysian brothers and sisters in the Commonwealth, the crash is a particularly cruel tragedy coming so soon after the loss of MH370. Please be assured of my family’s thoughts and prayers at this time”
