Malaysia Airline #MH17 shot down over Ukraine on route deemed unsafe by FAA earlier this year

Ukraine government in Kiev claim jetliner shot down over their territory by pro-Russian separatists...

- Malaysian Airlines MH17 travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur

- No survivors reported among 280 passengers 15 crew.

Back in April US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) had deemed Ukraine airspace unsafe for civilian air travel.

Excerpt: "...political and military tension between Ukraine and the Russian Federation remains high, and compliance with air traffic control instructions issued by the authorities of one country could result in a civil aircraft being misidentified as a threat and intercepted or otherwise engaged by air defense forces of the other country."

Conversation intercepted by Ukraine intelligence points to possible confirmation that pro-Russia separatists are claiming responsibility for the attack...
