We bring you the latest from the Ukraine after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was reportedly shot down by rebel soldiers. Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed Ukraine for the downing, saying it was responsible for the unrest in its Russian-speaking eastern regions — but did not accuse Ukraine of shooting the plane.
The suggestion has been that MH17 was shot down by either Russian air defense systems along the Ukraine border, or by pro-Russian separatists with a radar-guided surface to air missile system. Jalopnick - one of the many Gawker news blog sites says it's not unreasonable considering at least three Ukrainian military aircraft have been shot down out of the sky in the last few days. Could Someone Have Mistaken This For A Military Aircraft?
What we know about the Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was shot down yesterday over eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board are dead - including one Canadian. Ukrainian intelligence has released an audiotape they say proves separatists are behind the strike. Pro-Russian separatists, Ukraine or Russia - no one is taking responsibility for shooting the flight down. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko calls the loss of the plane over Donetsk a "terrorist action". US president Barack Obama has offered support to Ukraine to help with the investigation. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has extended his condolences to the families of the victims.
Thunderstorm watches and warnings swept across parts of southern and central Alberta on Thursday. Calgary was under a thunderstorm watch for most of the afternoon.

We bring you the latest from the Ukraine after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was reportedly shot down by rebel soldiers.
