Missile system used in MH17 takedown blamed for a second aircraft attack over Ukraine

On a day which saw a fighter jet shot down in Ukraine, on Thursday evening Erin Burnett welcomed CNN's Nick Paton Walsh to report "OutFront" from Donetsk.

Less than a month since the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, Walsh noted that the missile system used in both aircraft attacks appears to be similar, if not identical.

Additionally, the situation on the ground in Ukraine remain tenuous as fighting continues to rage near the wreckage of Flight 17, while this week also saw a rebel leader quite in bizarre and unexpected fashion.

For Walsh's full report on the latest developments, including the expected next movements from Russia, watch the above video.
