It seems inevitable with all major events nowadays that conspiracy theories will follow in rapid fashion. The ill fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was no different, and the Internet has been awash with theories of corruption in recent days.

The main rumour, stemming from a report from a Russian news agency, centred on claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin was the real target.

The conspiracy suggests Putin was on a plane which had a similar flight path to the doomed airliner and was due to be in the same air space about 35 minutes after the Malaysian plane came down.

An unnamed source reportedly told the Interfax news agency: “I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon.

“That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft – 15:44 Moscow time.

“The contours of the aircrafts are similar, linear dimensions are also very similar, as for the colouring, at a quite remote distance they are almost identical.”
