Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, fulfilled a promise to “shirtfront” Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Abbott said he has information that Russian supported rebels shot down MH17 with a missile supplied by Russia, returning the launcher to Russian soil after the shoot down.
Abbott also suggested that the Americans had also shot down civilian aircraft and, once recognized, had not only accepted blame but paid reparations.
Abbott suggested Putin consider doing the same.
Abbott had several options available to him, but chose to meet with Putin at the APEC meeting in Beijing so as not to overshadow the events there.
38 Australian citizens were killed on MH17 and Australian are still suffering and calling for compensation.
