    And the English translation:

    I believe that this should prove that the rebels were indeed the ones to shoot down the plane. What do you think?

    I accidentally killed the president in error.

    Doesn't mean I still shouldn't get screwed in every way possible by the military or police.

    Nothing is 100% but that always seemed like the most likely explanation to me and nothing yet seems to have contradicted it.

    I will be somewhat surprised, if the plane was not downed by one of the warring parties and probably the separatists. But in war there will be collateral damaged. It happens all the time. To get really upset, as unhappy as this is, it is the wrong moment. When the EU Treaty was forced and the demonstrations started, we knew that the thing could go into civil war. Innocents would be killed. That is where we are.
