Some indirect family members of mine died on that airplane, it makes me very sad. Although i am pro-russian in the sense that i believe that East Ukraine deserves to hold a referendum to decide their own future on whether they want to be part of Russia or not. The fact that people can kill each other over having a different opinion goes too far in my opinion. I am pretty baffled that pro-Russians couldn't distinguish a military airplane from a regular airplane, and i am baffled that regular flights were still being continued above such an area. I think that because it was safe to do so for many decades international airports saw no direct threat for passenger airline jets to do so. Ironically,since it was a Malaysian airline airplane one of the passengers posted a picture. In dutch the : Mocht hij verdwijnen, zo ziet ie eruit. translated: In the case it disappears, it looks like this. Posted as a joke, and now the guy who posted that is dead.
