Republican Sen. John McCain is already saying there will be “profound repercussions” if the Malaysian passenger airliner that crashed in Ukraine near the Russian border was shot down by Russia or Russian separatists, according to BuzzFeed.



The plane crashed Thursday with 280 passengers and 15 crew aboard the flight. McCain emphasized the hypothetical nature of his comments, which he made on both CNN and MSNBC Thursday.

“Thus far, we really don’t know what caused it,” McCain said. “But the fact is they were able to, quote, separatists, were able to shoot down an aircraft at 21,000 feet shows that there was capabilities. I do not want to leap to any conclusions because we, as you mentioned, it could be an explosion, it could be all kinds of reasons.”
