Sen. Ayotte: 'Russia Has Their Fingerprints All Over' Flight MH17 Crash

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) was meeting with the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States when they got news that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 had gone down.

Ayotte went “On The Record” this evening, where she said that the ambassador believes that pro-Russian separatists have Buk missiles, which were provided by Russia. Ayotte said that the missile that reportedly shot down MH17 either came from Russia or Russian-backed separatists.
