MH17 flight: Obama accuses Ukrainian separatists supported by Russia

"The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a ground-to-air missile launched from an area within the Ukraine, controlled by separatists supported by Russia. We also know that this is not the first time that a plane is shot down in Eastern Ukraine. And, yet, we know that these separatists have received a steady stream of support on the part of Russia. "

The UN Security Council convened an emergency meeting that began with a minute of silence in honor of the victims of flight MH17.

The Russian Ambassador to the United Nations requested an "open and impartial investigation" and defended the position of the Kremlin:

"We put all the blame on the Government in Kiev and we asked Ukraine to take decisive action to prevent such incidents in the future."

For its part, the u.s. representative did not rule out that there has been "Russian assistance" given the separatists "technical complexity" of the missile have been used.
