Bulgaria: Malaysia Airlines Passenger Jet Crashes in Eastern Ukraine Photo: Twitter, IT Sector Harkov

A Malaysia Airlines jet with 295 people on board crashed Thursday in the hostile eastern region of Ukraine, near the Russian border, reports NBC news. 

According to reports, all 280 passengers and 15 crew are dead.

Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko said he could not rule out that the passenger plane had been shot down. 

Ukraine accused "terrorists" of shooting down the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with a ground-to-air missile Buk as it flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

According to reports in the Ukrainian media, the pro-Russian separatists had recently laid their hands on several such missile complexes.

Leaders of rebels in the Donetsk People's Republic denied any involvement, although around the same time their military commander said his forces had downed a Ukrainian transport plane An 26.

P.S., France send more warships! Merci beau coup!

What about Three Mile Island and Fukashima. We all have meltdowns from time to time. Why blame Russia, why not blame USA? Putin is puppet of CIA. He just do what USA tell him. If Obama say give terrorists sophisticated weapon systems and heavy weapons and tanks and advisors and conscripts, he give. He paid by CIA to make Russia look bad and USA look good. Eventually, purge and Russia get strong leader not puppet of USA like Putin.

OK, pitko-shitko, so what you say is that shooting down the malaysian Boeing was a revenge for Ukrainian shooting down a russian jet in 2001.

Airliner blasted out of sky

A RUSSIAN airliner exploded and plunged into the Black Sea yesterday killing all 78 people on board.
Terrorism was immediately suspected but America said the plane had been shot down by a misfired Ukrainian missile.
Flight 1812 from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk, in Siberia, left Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport shortly before 10am with 66 passengers, including two babies, and 12 crew. As it flew off the Black Sea coast, it blew up plunging 35,000 feet to the water.
The pilot of a nearby Armenian aircraft reported seeing the Russian-built Tupolev-154 burst into flames, prompting immediate speculation that it had been destroyed by a bomb on board.
However, Washington quickly attempted to quash speculation of a new terrorist attack. Unnamed US officials claimed that the aircraft was brought down by a long-range air defence missile fired during exercises by Ukrainian armed forces.

Mr Pitkin:

LOL, you should at least look for a fake reporter that's alive:


You Russian paid stooges really make it even clearer who's behind the biggest terrorist mass murder of innocent human beings in European history.

P.S. Remember Korean Air Flight 007.

P.S. Mr. Pitkin, go fuck your dirty whore mother. You clearly learned the prostitution trade from her.

• Iran Air Flight 655 -- On July 3, 1988, in the volatile Persian Gulf, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iran Air Airbus A300 bound for Dubai, United Arab Emirates. All 290 passengers and crew aboard were killed. The United States said the Navy ship had been exchanging fire with Iranian ships and mistook the passenger jet for an Iranian fighter jet.

Ukraine admits it shot down Russian airliner
By Ben Aris in Moscow
12:01AM BST 13 Oct 2001
Ukraine finally admitted yesterday that its military shot down a Russian airliner that crashed into the Black Sea last week, killing all 78 passengers and crew.
Evhen Marchuk, the chairman of Ukraine's security council, conceded that the plane had probably been brought down by "an accidental hit from an S-200 rocket fired during exercises".
Russian investigators believe a missile exploded near the plane, spraying it with shrapnel. Russian and Israeli scientists found metal pellets in the victims and in the fuselage.
Vladimir Rushailo, the chairman of Russia's security council, said: "The investigation has found that the disaster resulted from a strike by a warhead from an anti-aircraft missile."
Although both Russia and Ukraine were almost certainly aware of the cause from the start, it took eight days for Ukraine to accept responsibility.

Another crime against humanity by Russia. Looks like blowing away Korean Air Flight 007, killing millions of people in Afghanistan and Eastern Europe wasn't enough.

Since we have a monkey in the Kremlin who jacks off nightly to Stalin bending over with his hairy ass, we can imagine that Russia will be committing more and more atrocious crimes and genocide. All while the PUSSY EUROPEANS sit and watch.

Get your balls Europeans and stop that monkey in the Kremlin, it's as simple as buying your gas from Qatar or America. And those stinky monkeys from the East will simply vanish from our tv screens.

So now will the Sanctions of all Ukraine business around the world and the assets of the business and it,s owners be frozen .
This crime it appears occurred on Ukrainian soil/air space therefore it lies with the Government of the country until proven different .
The Kiev government have played the sympathy game for support long enough and the USA has backed them because it goes against Russia ,they have dragged Europe into another conflict all be it not on the ground troops involvement ,but sanctions against Russia .
Will America and Europe now place similar sanctions on Ukraine .until they are seen to be totallyl not responsible for this crime .

No one expects you to shred a tear. See my previous post.

Vladimir K. - 18 Jul 2014 // 13:43:34

Hundreds of innocent Russian civilians are killed and nobody cares about that. Now people care about 300 foreigners? Well, I for sure won't even shred a tear.

Blade of the West - 18 Jul 2014 // 13:40:59

Cut off the pipelines, block accounts, stop paying anything for gas and oil, confiscate all foreign property and this cloac country full of primitive toothless peasants is finished in half a year.
