  1. Ukraine didn’t use the S-300 to shoot down civilian airliner MH-17. They used an older version of the Buk system. They had about 20 of these systems in the area. The shrapnel has a different shape than that of the ones used by Russia. Also the serial number has been traced to Ukraine. This was never covered in US media. Russia has no reason to attack Ukraine. Since they are moving these systems into place, they are going to give Russia a reason.

    1. Well, it hasn’t been published in U.S. media because that didn’t happen.

      Of course Russia has reasons to “attack” Ukraine. One is to keep Ukraine out of NATO. Another is to intimidate other neighbors who might have ideas of moving out of the Russian sphere.
