Ukraine separatist leader blames Kiev for downing plane

MOSCOW, July 17 (Reuters) - Separatist leader Aleksander Borodai blamed the downing of a Malaysian passenger airliner in eastern Ukraine on the country’s government forces.

“Apparently, it’s a passenger airliner indeed, truly shot down by the Ukrainian Air Force,” Borodai told Russia’s state-run Rossiya 24 TV broadcaster.

Kiev denied the involvement of Ukraine’s armed forces. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska and Ludmila Danilova, editing by Thomas Grove)
