A Ukrainian army battalion of Buk air defense systems was deployed near the city of Donetsk a day before the crash of a Malaysian passenger plane on Thursday, making the downing of the aircraft by one of the missiles highly probable, an expert source said.

“According to reconnaissance data, a Ukrainian army battalion of Buk air defense systems was deployed near Donetsk on Wednesday morning,” the source said.

The source added that armed militia fighting Kiev-led forces in eastern Ukraine does not have Buk systems, which are capable of shooting down aircraft flying at altitudes up to 25 kilometers (82,000 feet).

Earlier the same day, adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Minister wrote on his Facebook page that a Buk surface-to-air missile system was indeed used to down the plane, but insisted that the self-defense forces had done that.

Flight controllers reported that the plane disappeared from radar screens while flying at an altitude of about 10,000 meters (some 33,000 feet).

Various sources speculated that the plane was shot down by a Buk surface-to-air missile, while press service of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine claimed it was downed by a missile fired from a Ukrainian air force Su-25 combat jet.

Malaysia Airlines confirmed that it had lost contact with its plane when it was above the Ukrainian airspace.

The plane was to arrive to Malaysia at 10:10 a.m. Moscow time (06:10 GMT). The contact with the plane was lost at the Tamak waypoint, 30 miles off the border with Russia.
