According to Dutch investigators the aircraft crashed as a result of being hit by a Russian made Buk surface to air missile.

Oleg Storchevoy from the Russian Federal Air Transport Commission refuted the findings completely: “There is not a single hole in the body of the Boeing 777 that indicates it was downed by a Buk missile. The Russian side has analysed the results of tests using this missile and carried out its own research and experiments. We have reached an unequivocal conclusion that the so called projectiles found at the crash site were produced to steer the inquiry in the desired direction.’‘
The only point on which Moscow agreed with the Dutch was that Ukraine should have closed its airspace to civil aviation as conflict raged below.
