Russian Military Shoots Down Ukrainian Fighter Jet
A Russian military plane shot down a Ukrainian jet fighter over Ukrainian territory, reports the Ukrainian wire agency Unian.
The pilot ejected successfully and is uninjured, the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said Thursday.
Lysenko told reporters that the "provocation" occurred Wednesday evening. He said the pilot of the Su-25 assault aircraft was not injured and was rescued by Ukrainian military units.
"A military plane of the Russian Armed Forces launched a missile strike against a Su-25 aircraft of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which performed tasks on Ukrainian territory," Lysenko said, according to the Unian. "Our plane was shot down."
According to Lysenko, the plane was on a mission over the town of Amvrosievka and was hit by an air-to-air missile in the tail. The missile reportedly was fired by Russian planes patrolling the nearby border.

Ukraine Recaptures Sloviansk: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 54)
Published on Jul 8, 2014
On July 5, the eastern Ukrainian town of Sloviansk was recaptured by the Ukrainian military, driving out pro-Russia rebels and ending their three-month occupation. VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky travels back to Sloviansk and visits the cell in which he was held for days by those rebels in April. The city is in shambles and residents are struggling to find food and water despite a considerable humanitarian effort. The pro-Russia rebels have retreated to Donetsk, but the Ukrainian government is determined to pursue its anti-terror operation until there are no rebels left.
RT are not reliable as almost every Russian media of this time. Here follows the description by the Ukrainian source of what has happened:
Separatists shot at buses with civilian refugees. Then they left their bodies on the street and presented to Russian journalists as a proof of "Ukrainian atrocities". The bodies on RT photos are covered to conceil the fact the people were not killed by artillery fire as the RT claims.
And why would Ukraine need more sophisticated weapons? They already are destroying enough of their own towns and cities and continue killing civilians indiscriminantly.
The freedom fighters have no heavy weapons at all, and Ukranian tanks, artilery and air force are bombing the South-East part of the country into oblivian...
Is this how we should deal with people who do not share our opinions?
Unian? Don't they say every day week after week that gazillions of Rus tanks r storming across Ukraine n they need western (MONIES!!!) help? Those parasites just make up excuses all the time to steal more money.

Propaganda lies, Idiots take up. Only I-D-I-O-T-S can submit TODAY, less than a day after the сatastrophe, the various "confirmations"-suggestions as an absolute reference.
"The rebels DO have BUK...Here a confirmation from a Russian nationalist source of "Novorossiya" ??????
"The rebels DO NOT have BUK... Here a confirmation from an Ukrainian source of "Ukrainian Truth":
A translation from Russian: "The Military informed Poroshenko: the terrorists haven't captured Ukrainian "BUK".
Dated: 00:46, Friday, July18, 2014.
Again - propaganda lies. The rebels DO have BUK long range earth to air missiles. Here a confirmation from a Russian nationalist source of "Novorossiya":
A translation from Russian: "the sky over Donetsk will be protected by the BUK anti-aircraft missile/". information by Donetsk rebels, dated 29.06.
Russia has armed these terrorists with BUK Surface to Air Missiles. Yesterday they destroyed a Ukrainian Fighter Jet and today a civilian airplane with 295 innocent people on board.
Putin and Russia need to be punished severely for this act of state sponsored terrorism. The Russian mass murderers and Putin need to be prosecuted and hanged publicly for this act of savagery and terror.
When will this terroristic state called Russia be stopped?
The pro Russians do not have weapons that can shoot down a plane from let's say 35000 feet. Obviously what I mean to say is that a fighter did this, whether it's Russian or Ukrainian. Most likely Ukraine in order to bring the blame on Russia, as their NATO "friends" let them get away with anything.
Malaysia is a significant country..
They will ask a question why the plane was there?????
If I am a relative!!!! It is what I will ask.
I would be mad..and I will not be satisfied with propaganda.
Why may relatives are used as a meet in someone's dirty war?
All information points out to the Russian supported/armed/financed terrorists having shot this airplane down. They made numerous statements on Twitter that they had shot down a Ukrainian transport plane (since taken down). Russia gave them these Buk missiles and they have committed a type of mass murder that intelligence agencies had never in their dreams imagined any terrorist group could do.
Russia has killed 295 innocent souls.
You have a lot of blood on your hands Putin. Shame on you, disgraceful human being.
