Hours after the news of plane crash, it has been reported that the plane was brought down over eastern Ukraine. According to sources, pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine shot the plane with missile. While other reports claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin was the main target.
Putin, however, blamed Ukraine's government for the mishap. He said that Ukraine created the conditions for the insurgency in eastern Ukraine where separatists have bragged about shooting down at least three Ukrainian military aircraft. But Putin did not specifically deny that a Russian-made weapon had felled the Malaysian jetliner.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was quoted as saying, "This is a tragic day in what has already been a tragic year for Malaysia." Continuing his statement during a brief press conference in Kuala Lumpur, Najib added, "If it transpires that the plane was indeed shot down, we insist that the perpetrators must swiftly be brought to justice."
Meanwhile, a video has been surfaced and the site of the plane crash has been caught in the video.
