Update 22 Sept 2014
Why the Malaysian MH17 plane was diverted to fly over the very war-scenario in East Ukraine – and then got shot down? This report published on the aftermath of the crash shed light on the issue of different routes assigned at different occasions to the same flight: “Questions over why Malaysian plane flew over Ukrainian warzone“.
Update 21 Sept 2014
German families of victims in the shot-downed Malaysian Airlines MH17 to sue Ukraine AND Poroshenko over instructions on flying-route.

Update 18 Sept 2014
Report from the Russian Engineers Association confirm Malaysian Airlines MH17 was shot down by Ukraine fighter-jet.
Russian experts’ analysis shows that Dutch MH17-report was rigged. Links to the report in English here. For the report in original Rusian, go here. Links provided by The Oceania Saker. Here a news video on the Russian report, with English texts:

Update 9 Sept 2014
Comment by The Professors’ Blog on “Summary of Findings” published in the Preliminary Report [Comment and Link to the full report in Pdf., at section XI at the bottom of this page]. For instance:
The Report says: “The damage observed in the forward section of the aircraft appears to indicate that the aircraft was penetrated by a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft. It is likely that this damage resulted in a loss of structural integrity of the aircraft, leading to an in-flight break up.”
THAT, the last formulation in the transcript above, is the plausible explanation of the fragmentation of the aircraft (causing the rests were found scattered on the ground), and NOT that the “destruction of the aircraft already in the air” would have been “obviously” the result of a surface-to-air missile impact. I have to note that “Western” media have not reproduced that last sentence in the news reports. An illustration here below:
DW: “Damage observed on the forward fuselage and cockpit section of the aircraft appears to indicate that there were impacts from a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft.” Period.
Breaking: A Malaysia main paper reports on US-experts’ findings which indicate the MH17 was downed by an air-to-air missile attack, finished by cannon fire. Malaysia asking, Did Ukraine Military Do It? Click on link for the full article “US analysts conclude MH17 downed by aircraft“.

By M. Ferrada de Noli
“The last radio transmissions made by Dnipropetrovs’k air traffic control centre to flight
MH17 began at 13.20:00 hrs and ended at 13.22:02 hrs. The crew did not respond to
these transmissions.” | “The last radio transmission made by the crew began at 13.19:56 hrs and ended at13.19:59 hrs.”
Why Control called MH 17 by the same moment, or immediately after it was hit (communications interrupted) and not before?. And most importtant, why the conversations are not transcribed? Ten days before the Report was published, the Russian Deputy Minister of Defence, Anatoly Antonov,demanded anew the transcripts to be published by the authoriies with acces to the materials. Why they have neglected this relevant request, while it is absolutely (technically) feasible to do it?
“According to radar data three commercial aircraft were in the same Control Area as flight MH17 at the time of the occurrence. All were under control of Dnipro Radar. At 13.20 hrs the distance between the closest aircraft and MH17 was approximately 30 km.”
If there were other commercial aircraft in the radio of 30 kilometers fro MH17, it is preposterous to assume that the Rebels wished to down just MH17 and no the others. Or phrasing it in another way, why would not the Rebels downed the others aircraft too?
Damage observed on the forward fuselage and cockpit section of the aircraft appears to indicate that there were impacts from a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft.
That rather correspond to powerful machine gun of the type used by the S-25 cannons.
The pattern of damage observed in the forward fuselage and cockpit section of the aircraft was not consistent with the damage that would be expected from any known failure mode of the aircraft, its engines or systems.
That clearly indicate that the fire was directed at the cockpit, and that the communications interrupted with the killing of the crew.
The damage observed in the forward section of the aircraft appears to indicate that
the aircraft was penetrated by a large number of high-energy objects from outside
the aircraft. It is likely that this damage resulted in a loss of structural integrity of the
aircraft, leading to an in-flight break up.
THIS, the last formulation in the transcript above, is the explanation of the fragmentation of the aircraft, and NOT that it would have been the result of a land-to-air missile.
