I was reading this article which is an open letter to UK Prime Minister David Cameron from former Russian President, Sergey Stepashin, and Russian Politician President, Sergey Glazyev regarding the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 crash.
Most of it is claims with no sources or explanation to back them up.
For example, at the start of article:
every day we are seeing more evidence emerging that supports Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement made right after the crash that the plane was downed by Ukraine’s military.
After this particular section, they refer to the plane being shot down by Ukrainian forces as fact:
[...] after they lured the Malaysian plane into a trap and downed it.
However, one part did interest me:
as well as the forced diversion of the plane from its regular flight path
Was the plane diverted from its normal path? If so, what was the the justification?
