That is very suspicious.

MonsoonBloom - 17 Jul 2014 16:53:03 (#2 of 1911)

They can't have many left.

Lento_ - 17 Jul 2014 16:53:32 (#3 of 1911)

If it turns out the Russians, or a Russian group, shot it down then the repercussions could be interesting.

MonsoonBloom - 17 Jul 2014 16:54:28 (#4 of 1911)

Yes none of us wasn't another Russia/Malaysia war.

JudasGoat - 17 Jul 2014 16:55:16 (#5 of 1911)

Nah. Even if its the pro-Russian separatists, the Kremlin will disavow any responsibility and nothing further will occur.

Moominmamma12 - 17 Jul 2014 16:55:18 (#6 of 1911)

And this one hasn't gone to the bottom of the sea.

Ukranian Interior Minister is claiming that separatists shot it down with a Buk missile.

Clearly that won't happen, but it could lead to increased sanctions against Russia, and escalate the situation in Ukraine more.

JudasGoat - 17 Jul 2014 16:57:52 (#9 of 1911)

There's little chance that Russian involvement will ever be proved, even if they done it.

Israel - 17 Jul 2014 16:58:47 (#10 of 1911)

Some reports of the airplane being shot down already emerge.

Turns out it was Obama's fault!

WhataBoderation - 17 Jul 2014 17:03:28 (#12 of 1911)

I blame Hamas

JohnIlly - 17 Jul 2014 17:03:56 (#13 of 1911)

Mossad, more likely.

It's not a 'report', it's an allegation by a Ukrainian government spokesman.

Israel - 17 Jul 2014 17:07:38 (#15 of 1911)

Yep, a rocket fired from Gaza did it.

CloakAndDagger - 17 Jul 2014 17:15:39 (#16 of 1911)

Just because the thread is in International doesn't mean you cretins have to infect it with your I/P bollocks right from the off, you know.

JohnIlly - 17 Jul 2014 17:16:37 (#17 of 1911)

It will be interesting to see who gets to the wreckage first, Ukraine's government troops, rebels or Russians.

AshburtonAbove - 17 Jul 2014 17:18:35 (#18 of 1911)

That I/P stuff was spoken in jest wasn't it?

Surely

JohnIlly - 17 Jul 2014 17:28:17 (#19 of 1911)

Yes. Rather black humour, I am afraid.

pushkin - 17 Jul 2014 17:30:17 (#20 of 1911)

Reuters has a correspondent on the ground there. Waiting for his/her report.
