U.S. cannot rule out Russian help downing plane in Ukraine

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United States said on Friday it could not rule out Russian help to separatists in Ukraine in firing an SA-11 surface-to-air missile that likely downed a Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine with 298 people on board.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power told the U.N. Security Council that a Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 was “likely downed by a surface-to-air missile … operated from a separatist-held location in eastern Ukraine.”
