A source at UkSATSE (the main body of the air traffic control in Ukraine) told Censor.NET that "the Boeing was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters in the international corridor. There are no restrictions on flying at that altitude because previously there was no threat to aviation at such heights. The airliner was led by Rostov air traffic control center of the Russian Federation together with the Ukrainian dispatchers. The Boeing beacon disappeared instantly, without any warnings or SOS signals. The plane instantly fell in the vicinity of Torez. We exchanged views with Russian colleagues and at once came to the conclusion that the Boeing was shot down. All information about the crash is recorded and will be submitted to international experts. "
