Rebel commander Igor Strelkov - widely believed in Kiev to be a serving Russian military intelligence officer - tweeted a boastful message shortly after Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was downed.
The tweet indicated he thought his rebels had shot down an Antonov-26 military plane of the Ukrainian Air Force. The Antonov is a turboprop transport plane of a type used by Ukraine's forces.
The message read: 'In the area Torez we just hit down An-26, it's lying somewhere in the mine "Progress".
'We warned you- do not fly in "our sky". And here is the video confirmation of the "bird dropping".
'Bird fell fell near the mine, the residential sector was not disturbed. Civilians are not injured.'
Later as the horror became clear, the tweet was deleted.

Sepratist’s huge missle launcher seen by reporters earlier.
What’s daming is the quick admission/bragging that they brought down the plane and the whereabouts. Going to be hard to refudiate seeing as they had all the answers right away.
So the Russian led forces immediately had claim responsibility and now want to hide that claim.
Those responsible claimed such contemporaneous with the event.
How many Americans died in “their” sky today? If we were still a nation worth its salt, we would send several loads of our best bombs over eastern Ukraine and teach them a valuable lesson. I doubt Putin would challenge us to save those rural rubes.
I want the Putinistas here to explain again how peaceful and wonderful these folks are
Putin will come out later today and call the passengers Nazis, which our resident Putinists will pick up and run with.
I agree. And seeing as how these ‘rural rubes’ just created a major international incident for President Putin - not to mention a serious migraine, as well - I’m like to think at this point Putin must be saying to himself that these clowns are no longer worth it.
Not after this.
Looks like they finally found that missing Malaysian airliner.
Will be interesting to hear Putin’s fan club here, on this one.
I have to say that I’ve been puzzled by the pro Putin talk by many on the conservative side. I just don’t get how hating Obama means liking Putin?
Even prior to today’s events...since it’s not totally clear what happened to that airliner...Putin as some sort of hero? Wasn’t buying into that talk. The Russians, as well as the Chinese have been ‘evil’ empires for a bloody long time. 6 years of Obama doesn’t cure the evil...yes evil...lurking w/in those countries.
Maybe bamster can draw a red line for igor. If it wasn’t for all the souls lost, I’d enjoy watching obamas’ balls getting squeezed by putin and his band of merry “separatists”.
Because the Russians have likely infiltrated our movement, same as they’ve done the leftists. Right now Russia is building a coalition of far left and right wing parties throughout Europe both overtly and covertly, even extremist parties like Jobbick or Golden Dawn, who are Pro-Russian. There’s no hard evidence people like Alex Jones or others are on the Russkie payroll, but I think it be very odd if we didn’t also receive some of the FSB treatment other countries are getting.
When do we send in the bombers? Maybe take out one of his aircraft carriers.
Obama Derangement Syndrome. I despise Obama, have since before he became acting President, but that doesn’t mean I support Putin. Not the case with some, I’m afraid.
Your right, this will go over like a fart in church.
Going to be trouble here
Hashtags are being loaded on stealth bombers as we speak.
Two days ago Obama gave a speech that he brought Global Tranquility. Now we have a Malaysian jetliner shot down and Israel ground invasion. Obama has check out!
Evidently, 23 on board were Americans.
Just ran across this on Jester’s Twitter feed.
Russians swear they will get away with it because they are athletics worshipers, and our corrupt government and rich elites live by the athlete, no matter how brutal or dum.
If we let the Penn State rapes go on for so long, mind you, Russia will have to do much much worse than down an airliner before anyone will start reluctantly whimpering to do something about it. We will impeach Obama before we will ever react to an accidental nuking of NYC.
So how does anyone know that Mr Igor Strelkov’s twitter account was not hacked by the NSA or other agency?
The issue is not whether you like Putin but whether you believe an Obama led US is capable of taking him on with a successful outcome.
I think everyone on this board knows the answer to that question.
We shot it down
No, we didn’t do that
We warned you!!!
What comes next? “It was spying on us”??
Malaysin Airlines second plane to go down seems more important than the Ukraine/Russian squabble. The airline seems to be the target.
Throwing gas on the Ukraine/Russia fire is the cherry on top
I take no side, but even the media hasn’t made the call on who launched the missile.
So why don’t you wait for Obama and McCain to give us the scoop.
How does anyone know that Mr Igor Strelkov’s twitter account was not hacked by the NSA or some other agency who is actually working with Cathay Airlines in an elaborate plan to take down their competitors in Malaysia Airlines?
remember this... the Russians have a HISTORY of shooting down commercial planes. Both in the past were KOREAN planes.
The first was KAL 902 in 1978. Soviet air defense shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 902 (KAL 902) near Murmansk, Soviet Union, after the civilian aircraft violated Soviet airspace and failed to respond to Soviet ground control and interceptors.
Soviet air defense initially identified it as part of the US air reconnaissance force, which carried out thousands of flights along Soviet borders annually at the time. Captain Alexander Bosov, pilot of the Sukhoi Su-15 that brought down Flight 902, saw Asian logogram characters on the tail of the Korean aircraft, and reported this to the ground control. Despite this, Vladimir Tsarkov, commander of the 21st Soviet Air Defense Corps, ordered Bosov to take down the plane, as the plane failed to respond to repeated orders to land, and was approaching the Soviet border with Finland.
The second was a Korean Air Lines flight from New York City to Seoul via Anchorage. On September 1, 1983. That was KAL 007.
Thank you! I’ve been appalled myself because praising one communist over another makes no sense, both are evil.
Posters like you give me back faith in humanity. Usually threads dealing with Ukraine are infested by Putinists, so it kinda warps my view
Putin is no better than any other Russian Communist, he just gets better social media coverage because he works out...he may be more deceptive but not any better. I was stunned how many conservatives are making nice about the guy who disses Obama...neither man is moral, godly, or gives a hoot about anything but power or control.
Incidentally, he spoke about the New World Order, and his belief it exist just 3 months prior.
It’s called Ockham’s (or “Occam’s,” if you prefer) Razor. Look it up...
No, we didnt do that
We warned you!!!
What comes next? It was spying on us??
How prophetic of you!
"Igor Bezler: We have just shot down a plane. Group Minera. It fell down beyond Yenakievo (Donetsk Oblast).http://www.kyivpost.com/content/ukraine/separatists-admit-downing-a-civilian-plane-in-tapped-conversation-full-transcript-356545.html
Vasili Geranin: Pilots. Where are the pilots?
IB: Gone to search for and photograph the plane. Its smoking.
VG: How many minutes ago?
IB: About 30 minutes ago.
SBU comment: After examining the site of the plane the terrorists come to the conclusion that they have shot down a civilian plane. The next part of the conversation took place about 40 minutes later.
Major: These are Chernukhin folks who shot down the plane. From the Chernukhin check point. Those cossacks who are based in Chernukhino.
Grek: Yes, Major.
"Major": The plane fell apart in the air. In the area of Petropavlovskaya mine. The first 200 (code word for dead person). We have found the first 200. A Civilian.
Greek: Well, what do you have there?
Major: In short, it was 100 percent a passenger (civilian) aircraft.
Greek: Are many people there?
Major: Holy sh__t! The debris fell right into the yards (of homes).
Greek: What kind of aircraft?
Major: I havent ascertained this. I havent been to the main sight. I am only surveying the scene where the first bodies fell. There are the remains of internal brackets, seats and bodies.
Greek: Is there anything left of the weapon?
Major: Absolutely nothing. Civilian items, medicinal stuff, towels, toilet paper.
Greek: Are there documents?
Major: Yes, of one Indonesian student. From a university in Thompson.
Militant: Regarding the plane shot down in the area of Snizhne-Torez. Its a civilian one. Fell down near Grabove. There are lots of corpses of women and children. The Cossacks are out there looking at all this.
They say on TV its AN-26 transport plane, but they say its written Malaysia Airlines on the plane. What was it doing on Ukraines territory?
Nikolay Kozitsin: That means they were carrying spies. They shouldnt be f cking flying. There is a war going on. "
Kozitsin is one cold SOB
It seems like it’s cursed
They knew what they were shooting.
Remember KAL 007.
Dishonest, hypocritical cowards. they knew what tehy were shooting.
Remember KAL 007.
Agreed. I have had that exact conversation with all too many. They seem to be Paulinistas as well and Alex Jones fans. They have a grand conspiracy theory which includes what a wonderful Christian Vlad is.
Likeyou I just don’t get it....I attribute it to some being too young to know what the KGB and the Soviet Union (formerly known as Russia) is all about
Keep telling yourself that.
This won’t stop our anti-American/pro-Putinistas from claiming Putin’s thugs are innocent. It’s the planes fault. It Ukraine’s fault. It’s not Putin’s and the air defense personnel who fired the missile who are to blame, as they see it.
What are the chances that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17
and Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are the same plane?
Both were Boeing 777’s.
“I want the Putinistas”
Putinistas? How about Putinoids, Putinites or my favorite
Putinarians. I like Putin, when he is pimp slapping the
Obama and Kerry around like the little bitches that they are
but that’s about it. Otherwise he’s just a punk commie.
Why would you even think this?
“Why would you even think this?”
Just the odds. 2 planes same airline, same type of plane,
both lost in abnormal circumstances. One is never found the
other may cause an international incident.
Why would you think “zero” odds?
Better question..... did the same bad guys down both planes
