Strelkov is bragging about it, thinking they shot down Ukrainian AN-26:



This is what happens if you send Buk rocket systems to terrorists.... Happy now, Russia?

Well, looking at this...

[quote="Nickodemos, post: 121434436"]Just so everybody's clear, operating advanced SAM systems such as the Buk is beyond the ability of the average insurgent cockmongler. If there are such systems employed on the separatist side, they're crewed by personnel from the Russian air-space defence brigades and get their orders from the Russian chain of command.[/QUOTE]

I would assume so.

What the fuck. Is there any way to prove whether the missile came from Russia or the Ukraine? Or will everyone just be blaming each other?
It would be hard for anti air missile to originate from Russia, they have around 25 km of operating range (BUK). Other thing would be either trained separatists /Ukraine army trigger happy crew of mobile launcher unit.

does Malaysia even have a military? I doubt they will respond
they have, but they won't respond military Russia is too big and Ukraine too far, but they will ask for diplomatic support from international community and ask for payment of the losses and sorry.

Fuck, rip to all those who have died (I am sure many if not all on that plane did :( ) and I am sure there will be consequences for this. Terrible.

Wow, shot down. Might be only one who did it. No extremists problem but rebel.

Or even worst, Russia or Ukraine.

There is one thing we aren't considering how many of those passengers were westerners? What diplomatic nightmare, I recall that USA enter WWI exactly because of stuff like this

That shit needs to be saved and archived. Strelkov is a GRU officer. He gets his marching orders straight from Uncle Vlad.

Well, damn. My guess is, the Donetsk separatists fucked it up and can't hope for any russian help now if Ukraine attacks their shithole of a city. But that's just a wild guess.
