  1. Why wait for sanctions from America….if I see the list its most European people….come on Den Haag wake up and get there this time WITH weapons! What about gaspipe….not buy any at all! Visa to all eu countries denied, that’s just comming up in my mind…. And America, is NOT Big Brother whom can tell everyone what to do or what not to do, know your borders.

  2. If there is no confirmation yet that it was striked by missile, why is US so quick to point fingers at Russia ?
    There is one more “coincidence” beside the exact date of 17 years. Malaysia reported in their local news that the Prime Minister’s step grandmother is in the plane. Few months back in the MH370, they claimed that the chief pilot is a strong supporter of the Opposition leader and he attended the court in the afternoon where the Opposition leader was sentenced to a jail term. The same night, the pilot took off and the incident happened.
    Also just recently the US President visited Malaysia and met up with Malaysia’s PM.

    We never know whether there was any conspiracies behind these incidents but one fact is sure; these highly dubious national carrier have been losing a lot of money in their accounts since many years ago, and taxpayers’ money have been used to bail them out.

    • The only Ukrainian government would have a benefit from this crash!
      The plane debris found riddled with air striker machine gun bullets..How come?
      How come the plane change direction to 14 km away from the usual root?
      Why we did not hear about interview with air traffic controller?
      All we could see OFICIALLY the Russian radar wich located around 60 km away on Russian side -showed the two Ukrainian air striker were flying around MH17 AT THE MOMENT OF CRASH.
      Why we can not see US satellite pictures which was located exactly over Ukraine at the moment of crash?

  3. Do anyone think about that may it be the same airplane which dissapeared in march MH317 ? And the passports of passengers on the photos is like brand new ? It is all a big game !!!

    But why Russia gave such ammunition to rebels?? I have a strong feeling that Russia has a hidden agenda and they also spotted this air bus while it was in the sky. Russia is the one responsible for this horrific sky murder. Truly the there is no heaven for you.
