Total bullshit, Kiev shot it down, that's why Kiev confiscated the ATC record and nobody in the west dare to talk about it.
Why did the plane deviated over 500km from its usual path? Obviously the ATC forced them to so otherwise they wouldn't be that fucking stupid and fly over a known war zone.
MH17 was also requested by Kiev to drop from 35000 ft to 33000 ft right before it got hit.
Learn to use your brain, stupid Americans.
You do know that the missile used has a flight altitude of 14,000 m or 46,000 ft so I don't think that 35,000 ft or even 33,000 ft would make much of a difference on a missile system that has a 95% plus chance of hitting especially if that aircraft that is sub sonic and has no countermeasures. As to who is to blame "I don't know" but a weapon is pretty much useless unless there is a human pulling the trigger or pressing the button.
