“MH17 it seems has been shot down over the eastern Ukraine it seems by Russian-backed rebels,” said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
"We also know that this is not the first time a plane has been shot down in eastern Ukraine. ... Moreover, we know that these separatists have received a steady flow of support from Russia. ... and it includes anti-aircraft weapons," said President Barack Obama.
