Ukraine: Russian-backed Cossack militants shot down Malaysian plane

It now appears clear who shot down the Malaysian plane over Ukraine:

Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was allegedly shot down by a group of Russian-backed Cossack militants near the village of Chornukhine, Luhansk Oblast, some 80 kilometers north-west of Donetsk, according to recordings of intercepted phone calls between Russian military intelligence officers and members of terrorist groups, released by the country’s security agency (SBU).

As always, the price of weakness goes up. Had the invasion & annexation of Crimea been resisted, some would have died, but not this.
