Ukraine air tragedy. Remember Siberia Air in 2001? - Comments

I have seen no mention in western media coverage of the Malaysian 17 air tragedy of a similar tragedy involving a Russian civilian aircraft on 4 October 2001 of Siberia Air Flight 1812, a Tu-154 en route from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk that was downed by a Ukrainian Su-200 that hit the aircraft at 36,000 feet with a loss of 66 passengers & 12 crew. [disbursement of nationalities was 38 Russian citizens & 40 Israeli nationals].
