What Is The Buk SAM System, Why Is It Important, And Do Ukraine's Separatists Have One?

There are some reports that Col. Igor Strelkov, commander of the pro-Russian separatists in the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic," is taking credit for downing a second Ukrainian airplane today, not realizing that in fact it was the Malaysian airliner.

The Interpreter has translated the dispatch from Strelkov's VKontakte page today:

"In the area of Torez, we have just shot down an AN-26 airplane, it is scattered about somewhere by the Progress coal mine.

Here is a video confirmation of the latest 'bird drop.'

Civilians were not hurt.

There is also information about a second downed airplane, apparently an SU."

 Strelkov also posts two videos with his dispatch:
