 U.S. Department of State: MH17 downed by pro-Russian militants with surface-to-air missile

The United States firmly stick to opinion the Malaysia Airlines Boeing was shot down with a surface-to-air missile fired by Russia-backed separatists.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, this was announced by the Deputy Spokesperson of the US State Department Mark Toner at a briefing in Washington.

He claims MH17 was downed with a surface-to-air missile launched from the separatist-controlled area in the east of Ukraine.

The deputy spokesperson stresses the United States support the Dutch investigation with the National Transportation Safety Board being involved. Toner states the Washington's assumption as for Russia-backed separatists being the cause of the tragedy has not changed.
