    A Passenger Plane was Shot down in the Donetsk Region by "Buk" Missile System

    On July 17, a large passenger aircraft Boeing 777, performing a flight between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur, was shot down in the eastern part of Ukraine. According to the General Staff of Ukrainian Armed Forces, the airplane was crashed down by "Buk" missile system as the liner was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters.

    Ukraine has no long-range air defence missile systems in this area.

    The plane was shot down, because the Russian air defence systems was affording protection to Russian mercenaries and terrorists in this area.

    The leader of the terrorists Igor Girkin (Strelkov) immediately commented on the airplane catastrophe, believing that it was the Ukrainian jet that crashed down: “In Torez An-26 was shot down, its crashes are lying somewhere near the coal mine “Progress”. We have warned everyone: do not fly in our skies.”

    Ukraine will present the evidence of Russian military involvement into the Boeing crash.

    The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko called for the establishment of a National Commission with the involvement of the International Civil Aviation Organization and other international bodies to investigate the catastrophe. According to him, “those found responsible for this tragedy will be brought to justice.”
