Just curios, did anybody figure out yet that BUK is a top attack SAM? It's been a long time since this whole mess, it should have been apparent for just as long. MH17 was not hit from the top as BUK does in its terminal active tracker tracking phase.
This is a post from a guy that served on BUK, he explains everything in detail, google translate it;
In short BUK is not the murder weapon, it kills from the top, not from behind.
Yeah we know that's how the report narrowed it down to a buk. It attacked the cockpit area not the jet exhaust like a missile from a plane. You need to read the report on fact theyes even found parts of the missile embedded in the plane russian manufature. No doubt what it was at all only thing we're waiting for in final report is waiting for is to tell us who the crew was bUT I've seen reports they know who manned it just verifying and looking for witnesses.
There will be trial over this going to be lucky if they don't make it a war crime.

In the case of the BUK the rebels took credit for bringing it down. There are phone conversations from rebels to the masters in Moscow about what occurred. Russian media has shown the rebels with the missile launchers.
LifeNews is a Russian news website and 24-hour television channel that is owned by the News Media holding company. The TV channel was officially launched in September 2013. As of February 2014, it had a potential audience of 30 million subscribers. The channel's editor-in-chief is Anatoly Suleymanov.
LifeNews is owned by Ashot Gabrelyanov.
The Gabrelyanovs operate in different sectors of Russian life from showbusiness to the security services. According to an article in The Moscow Times an influence on their recent success has been loyalty to the Kremlin. "The father, Aram Gabrelyanov, refers to President Vladimir Putin as the "father of the nation". [-] One of Putin's oldest friends spent $80 million to become a key shareholder in the Gabrelyanovs' holding company, News Media, providing it with a flood of cash for investment.' 
In September 2014 Ukraine's National Council of Television banned 15 Kremlin-run channels, including Life News, for spreading war propaganda.
In 2015 News Media cut around 15 to 17 percent of the employees of Lifenews.

MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. The modification and type of the Buk missile, as well as the position of the Buk missile system that brought down the Malaysian Flight MH17 Boeing in 2014, suggest that the Ukrainian Armed Forces might have downed the airliner, Alexander Luzan, a former deputy chief of the Russian army air defense, said on Tuesday.
