At this point they are unable to determine who initiated the attack, however investigation will continue to find out who is accountable.

Just finished watching the video before i saw this topic, it's amazing how thorough they are. They also came to the conclusion that it was without a doubt a russian made missile fired by the buk-system, and that they researched other options.

Really? How sure can they be about this?

Did the missile miss its target, or was it meant to detonate outside the plane?

missles are meant to detonate outside the plane, jsut like most artillery as well. it increases the chance of a hit. to disable a plane you dont need to blow it up, you jsut need to damage it sufficiently to take it down. the shockwave and the shrapnel are enough to usually disrupt the airflow over the plane and then punch holes in it and maybe hit important stuff.

So basically all of the movies I have seen where the fighter pilot narrowly jukes out of the way of a missile are unrealistic?

Both Russia and the rebels in Ukraine deny any role in the July 2014 attack on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital.

Usually when something is hit by a missile there is a big explosion and the wreckage and debris are east to find. It took them forever to find this flight.

I still do not see the evidence that says this was Russia. If that is the case will Russia be paying the families of all the people who were killed in this plane crash?

The Buk missile system crossed the Russian border near the village of Sukhodolsk. By 9 a.m., it reached the city of Donetsk, a rebel stronghold and command center.

Russian state-sponsored media released a video from Almaz-Antey, the manufacturer, showing the effect of a Buk missile detonating next to an airliner cockpit. It claims the weapon that shot down the airliner was a much older model, and was fired from a part of Ukraine controlled by local government forces.
