WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is putting the likely blame for the downed Malaysian passenger plane on Ukraine separatists who had Russian military help.

Secretary of State John Kerry is citing a mix of U.S. intelligence & social media reports as evidence that he says "obviously points a very clear finger at the separatists."

Kerry says there's been a major flow of arms & weapons crossing the Russian border over the past month to assist the Ukrainian rebels who are fighting to break away in the east from the central government.

p>Kerry says separatists have shot down approximately 12 aircraft over the last month, & bragged approximately Thursday's attack on the Malaysian plane until they realized it was a commercial jet.

Kerry appeared on five talk shows Sunday.
