I Find it funny how the people who blame Russia and the self defence forces have fallen silent on this one

A Siberian Airlines plane was heading to Novosibirsk, Russia from Tel Aviv, Israel when it was shot down and crashed into the Black Sea on 4 October, 2001. All 78 passengers onboard were killed. The Ukrainian military denied its involvement at first.
However, Ukrainian officials later admitted that its military could have mistakenly shot the plane down during a training exercise, and some compensation was paid to victims's relatives.
Actually, the truth is fairly easy to find in this case--Russia and its rebels were framed by Kiev and NATO. This was the predicate act for the sanctions that may lead to major war.

The west has been piling sanctions on Russia for a long time, rather like one piles ham and salami and lettuce and tomato on a sandwich.
As a direct result of the MH17 incident, MORE sanctions were piled on.

They aren't modified and set to explode individually, they're built the same, so that they all react the same, no matter what they're being fired at.
The witness claims they can be and are being modified.
Crash investigators look at every possibility, and take them all seriously, until they can be conclusively ruled out. It's the way they work, no matter what they think happened.
And non-investigating experts don't have access to the data that investigating experts have. They weren't on scene with the wreckage, or handling it, etc.
