    that the pro-Russian militia stole a surface-to-air launcher (presumably from the Ukraine forces) -- boasted about it on twitter and an AP reporter saw it earlier in the week -- but by this evening the tweet had been deleted. (On BBC news feed around 19:04 GMT).

    So Putin and his people may not have had a direct hand in this, and may be ready to strangle the guys who did it because of the likely consequences. What's the Russian phrase for "You stupid little s**theads!"?
