Children's bed shaped like missile that downed MH17 plane stirs unease in Russia

October 13, 2016 18:56

A Russian firm has caused a stir after putting on sale a children's bed in the shape of a Buk missile launcher of the kind that shot down a Malaysian Airlines passenger jet in eastern Ukraine in 2014.

International prosecutors said last month the airliner had been shot down by a Buk missile fired from a village held by pro-Russian rebels. Moscow denies any involvement and points the finger at the Ukrainian army. All 298 people on board flight MH17, most of them Dutch, were killed.

The children's bed, made by the company in St Petersburg, has angered many Russian consumers who have vented their anger online complaining that it is in bad taste.
