    There is massive amount of Ukrainian propaganda on the Net. First point - "Possession of Buk in the hands of separatists IS NO PROOF OF MISSILE FIRED BY SEPARATISTS".

    Pro-Russian separatists simply did not fire the missile that downed MH17.

    A warzone is a complex place. There is a lot going on. These people who manned air defence units were doing their jobs just as other soldiers. The instructions were to shoot only planes which could be clearly identified.

    Ukrainian government has taken advantage of the situation to shoot down this civilian flight TO PIN THE BLAME ON MOSCOW.

    Moscow has no role in this tragedy.

    @asianobserve, let us wait for the inquiry to complete. Let us see a report. Then we shall comment further.

    I have full confidence that party that shot down MH17 will be the loser in this civil war.

    If separatists shot down MH17, then separatists will be the loser. If Kiev shot down MH17 then Kiev will be the loser.

    The judgement will not be done by USA. No amount of loud talk will change the outcome.

    Obama is not told the correct things. He works on advice which is not always true. This is the story of many political leaders.

    Political leaders are good orators and people of conviction but not necessarily correct.

    Nice big report. I can't nothing to add or to correct, because you don't watch it.

    We'll see. Maybe the wait is more exciting than the outcome.
