Ukraine separatist leader blames Kiev for downing plane
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Separatist leader Aleksander Borodai blamed the downing of a Malaysian passenger airliner in eastern Ukraine on the country's government forces.
"Apparently, it's a passenger airliner indeed, truly shot down by the Ukrainian Air Force," Borodai told Russia's state-run Rossiya 24 TV broadcaster.
Kiev denied the involvement of Ukraine's armed forces.
