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?

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.
