A Russian satellite takes pictures. Russian TV shows the pictures. The pictures show flight MH17. That is the plane that crashed in Ukraine.

The pictures also show a jet fighter. The jet fighter shot at the plane. Russia says that this jet fighter destroyed the plane.

Ukraine says this is not true.

Difficult words: crash (fall down), jet fighter (a plane which can shoot at other things), destroy (to break something completely).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
