Malaysian Airline Flight 17 has crashed in Ukraine. It has been reported that the flight, which was carrying 295 people on board, was shot down at altitude–34,000 feet-just hours ago. There have been few confirmations of this story at this moment, but multiple sources on the ground in Ukraine are confirming it.

Malaysian Airlines tweeted that they had lost contact with the flight, which was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, as it entered Ukrainian airspace. The passenger plane was reportedly shot down by a sophisticated Russian missile, one which reporters on the ground in Ukraine observed being delivered from Russian to Ukraine just twenty-four hours before this crash. An increase of Russian troops were reported to have arrived at the Ukrainian border along with the missiles. The fact that Russian seems to be building up their troops and transporting sophisticate missiles into Ukraine proves that things are escalating in this already tense war zone. Fox News explains that if these reports are confirmed, and it was, in fact, a passenger airplane shot down, it is a “game changer.”

Once again–though nothing has been confirmed by Malaysian Airlines, Russia, Ukraine, or the United States–multiple sources are reporting that a sophisticated Russian missile has shot down a passenger plane as it entered Ukrainian Airspace, killing the 295 people on board.

We’ll keep you updated as more information comes in.
