Experts Discuss Raging Conflict in Ukraine
DAYTON/DONETSK, UKRAINE-- Experts in the Miami Valley are reacting to the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, after it was shot down by a surface to air (SAM) missile in Eastern Ukraine.
"We've had 3 other Ukrainian aircraft shot down this week," said Political Science professor Dr. Donna Shalagchek, who specializes in terrorism studies. She added that Ukraine's government is blaming the Russian Federation for those attacks.
Now the fourth aircraft, wreckage from the Malaysian Airlines passenger jet, is strewn in a miles long debris field in Ukraine's Donetsk region. The area is home to Russian rebel separatists and a brewing civil war.
"This is the type of conflict we're going to see in the future, fewer and fewer conventional wars and a lot more unconventional conflict," Shalagchek added. She does not believe that the separatists have the kind of missile artillery to take down a jet flying at 33,000 feet.
"It tells us that it's probably a government that does not want to accept responsibility and has some plausible deniability," she said.
"I would hope at some point there's going to be some kind of international call for independent analysis of the black box," said University of Dayton professor Dr. David Darrow, "So that this tragedy does not become some sort of political football."
Darrow is an expert in Modern Russian Studies, and is recently back in the Miami Valley from Moscow. He says he hopes the missile launch will be a wake up call to the international community.
"Attempts to conduct negotiations and get everybody at the table needs more international support and and international pressure," Darrow said.
Commercial airlines are being re-routed to avoid Ukrainian airspace.
United State officials are tracking where the missile launched from.
"There's really no reason for Russia to annex these two provinces but then again," said Darrow, "Unfortunately rationality and foreign policy don't always go hand in hand."
