The Shooting of MH17

Tuesday 22nd July / presented by Ronan Lane

MH17 – that’s all it takes now, isn’t it? You know what I’m talking about.

The plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile as it flew over a rebel-held area over Ukraine last week.

But why on earth was a passenger plane targeted and dragged into conflict?

The destruction of MH17 has generated more questions than answers – and calls for recrimination and retaliation.

Ukraine accuses Moscow of fuelling the conflict and Moscow denies accusations suggesting Kiev’s military has caused the unrest.

The area has seen conflict for months. Pro-Russian separatists have targeted military aircraft over the east of Ukraine in the past.

Pro-Russian separatist groups are controlling the crash site but

Amnesty International calls for on-site investigation action urging full cooperation from the Ukrainian and separatist armed groups.

Ronan spoke to Curtin University's Strategic Affairs Analyst Dr Alexey Muraviev about the issue.
