Although there are always conspiracy theories to blame the Jews, Jesuits or the CIA (and I’m not arguing that such theories are necessarily wrong), there’s a global consensus that the primary entity responsible for downing Flight MH17 is either:
1) the Ukrainian rebels supported by Russia;
2) the government of Russia; or
3) the government of Ukraine.
Although the Ukrainian rebels were initially blamed, I’ve argued from the beginning (Who Destroyed Malaysia Flight 17?) that the rebels were the least likely suspect because they lacked the necessary training, experience and expertise to operate a highly sophisticated weapons system like the Buk SA-11.
Apparently, the Ukraine government now agrees with me. According to CNN (MH17 Crash: Did Russia pull the trigger? Ukraine says yes):
“Vitaly Nayda, Ukraine’s director of informational security, told CNN the person who shot down the flight was “absolutely” a Russian. “A Russian-trained, well-equipped, well-educated officer … pushed that button deliberately,” he said.”
