    I haven't heard any official statement from the relevant Russian ministries, yet you got MI5 supposedly saying its a smuggled bomb done by a baggage agent <- allegedly most likely perpetrator.

    What doesn't make sense is if they heard these chatters, why didn't they do anything prior? Also, these chatters that are at their disposal suggests high level technology. Yet, they still cannot "find" us the MH370 777 that's somewhere on this planet.

    But anyway, surely Russia has the same technology, so why aren't they saying the same thing? Maybe because they don't have anything concrete yet, and the British and Americas are looking to use ISIL as a scapegoat to further their foreign policy, domestic surveillance powers etc.

    What do you guys think?

    The Russians wont say what it is until they are sure, any MI5 are only saying it 'could' be a bomb, with nothing ruled out. (and safety precautions taken)
    Its a Russian plane, so obviously it was tracked and was easy to find (nothing against Malaysia)
    It crashed on land, so the recovery of the black boxes and such was very quick.
    Just because ISIL claim responsibility, in no way rules out some other reason for the crash, so until the investigation is complete, I doubt Russia will confirm anything.
    Obviously there was that other plane that got blown up in the Ukraine, so this is obviously a sore subject for the Russians (who were pretty much blamed for the whole thing in the Ukraine, whether they did it or not.)

    Nobody in the Uk intelligence service is saying that they were forewarned, they are saying that they have picked up 'chatter" post event.

    Why would Russia, who are known to deny all sorts of events that have then turned out to have happened, say that they have no intelligence? I have no idea.
    Bear in mind that this is a nation who have covered up and lied about various events and tragedies, even denying the death of presidents for days, they have no "european model" of being open about things that happen.

    it took them 2 days to announce that chernobyl had happened, all the while denying that it was significant.
    On the scale of nuclear events, chernobyl was a 7/7
