GUEST,Wolfgang BS: Passenger jet shot down over Ukraine (215* d) RE: BS: Passenger jet shot down over Ukraine 19 Jul 14


"Last time this happened it was the US who shot..." (Mrr)

Shooting down of civilian airliners between 1988 (the shooting down Mrr recollects) and today I could find:

September 1993: "...three Tupolev civilian airliners belonging to Transair Georgia were hit by missiles fired by rebels in Sukhumi, Abkhazia, Georgia. A total of 136 perished in the attacks." (Wikipedia)
The Abkhazian war of secession from Georgia was strongly supported by Russia. That might ring a bell.

October, 20th, 1998, "Rebels in eastern Congo shot down a Congo Airlines passenger jet" (Boston Globe). No Russian involvement!

October, 4th, 2001. A Ucrainian missile downs an Air Siberia plane killing all 78 on board.
