I don't see many people saying "It's Russia, it's Putin!" They are saying that pro-Russian forces, trained and equipped by Russian military, caused this event. Russia is not directly responsible, but I imagine they are indirectly responsible.
People seem to forget how recently Russia cleverly intervened using "pro Russian militants." They are not taking their commands from some local field General. So while I don't think Russia told their proxies to shoot down a civilian plane, I believe they were trained and equipped by Russia. Russia did not use a tight enough leash on their tools of dissent, and this is the result. Why people have to try and make it so complicated boggles the mind.
