"We always update our analysis as we get new information, but the information we have from the MH17 crash with - which happened a number of weeks ago, was very strong and very much led to the conclusion that we said at the time, that this was shot down from Russian separatist-controlled territory by a surface-to-air missile that the separatists have," Ms. Harf said.
