My opinion based on the info

My opinion based on the info I know of is that it was shot down by a buk but that it was fired by the European backed current Ukrainian government, likely the plane didn't id itself and the Ukrainians screwed up royally and now are trying to blame the rebels who don't even have these types of systems anywhere near the area that this was fired from. But you know who does have plenty of these buk systems in that area is the current western backed Ukrainian government.

They are trying to confuse Americans by pointing out that it was likely a Russian made buk that shot it down, implying the russian backed side did the shooting. Unfortunately for the western backed Ukrainian government they took over tons of these systems when they took over the government.
