The video referenced by the New York Times was, in fact, posted on the Facebook account of the Ukrainian Interior Minister. The allegation was that the launcher was crossing the border with Russia.
However, going by the billboard and other features of the scenery, Russian bloggers and news sources claim to have identified the road in the video as having been taken in or near the town of Krasnoarmeisk ("Krasnoarmiysk" in Ukrainian), which has been under Kiev's control since May.
In fact, the billboard is supposedly advertising a Krasnoarmeisk car dealership. Also, one of the structures in the background is said to be a construction materials store on Gorkii Street, Krasnoarmeisk.
Please note that this town is (very roughly) 120 kilometers from the Russian border and 80 kilometers from where the Malaysian 777 went down. And again, it has been under Kiev's control since May.

So the argument is that because the launcher is shown traveling on a road 120km from the Russian border, it must not be Russian? Well I guess that settles it then.

They're backing off blaming Putin because they know it's the wisest choice. Do we really want to be a target of Russia's vengeance? I sure don't.

I know this has been said a million times probably, but just imagine if Russia and US teamed up. I think the world would benefit from this friendship than anything in history.
