While Russian President Vladimir Putin has faced widespread criticism from the West for his support of pro-Moscow Ukrainian separatists blamed for downing a commercial jet, Russian media is telling a different story. One Russian TV piece challenged a widely-circulated clip of a Buk missile battery supposedly being hurried to the Russian border after the shootdown, saying that the serial number on the truck matches Ukrainian army equipment.
