Speculation abounded when Malaysian flight MH17 was shot down over the Ukraine in 2014.
Initial media reports indicated that separatist forces loyal to Putin were responsible. But that was quickly disputed by Russia, who claimed that it was the Ukrainian military who fired the fatal blow. Satellite photos provided by the Obama administration were immediately disputed. It has been suggested that the entire incident was a false flag designed to lay blame on the Russian President at the height of the Ukraine conflict.
Of interest is the fact that Vladimir Putin himself was reportedly flying over the area in an airplane whose colors resembled that of the Malaysian flight, suggesting that Ukrainians may have been taking a shot at the highest-level target possible at the time.
