BRICS, MH17 & Gaza: Game Changers for Whom? reflects the geopolitical situation and stakes. Also, the original commentary should have specifically mentioned the
inter-capitalist-rivalry game changer: BRICS in Brazil, where the most feared US rivals Russia & China, with a 'pro-american' bloc, birthed The New Development Bank as MH17 crashed and intensified genocide of Palestinians began:

Emerging Nations Bloc to Open Development Bank
RIO DE JANEIRO — At a meeting in Brazil, the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa announced today they were establishing a development bank to challenge the influence of venerable institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The New Development Bank, based in Shanghai, will open with an initial capitalization of $50 billion. India will name the first president, according to a statement from the leaders of the so-called BRICS group of nations, Russia and Brazil will select other top officers...“This provides security, a kind of safety net for BRICS countries and others,” {Brazil's president) Ms. Rousseff said.
Taken together, the New Development Bank and the contingency fund reflect ambitions of forging a new global economic framework. Nations like Brazil already have huge development banks that dwarf the World Bank in size. Still, leaders in emerging economic powers chafe at World Bank and I.M.F. policy prescriptions which emerged from the Bretton Woods monetary conference in New Hampshire 70 years ago. While the US has long wielded influence in the global economy through those institutions, China, which accounts for about 70 percent of the collective gross national product of the countries represented, has tried to play down its staggering economic weight in the bloc. But that could change over time, analysts said, if animus grows over China’s trade surpluses with other members. “There may be potential cracks in the facade of unity once China asserts its interests,” said Eric Farnsworth, vice president of the Council of the Americas and the U.S. Americas Society. The BRICS countries face other challenges like slowing economic growth. Still, while the bloc involves countries with varying levels of economic growth, vastly different political systems and an array of simmering issues like the hostilities between Russia and Ukraine and the territorial disputes between China and its neighbors, analysts caution that its potential clout should not be taken lightly. “They still have just shy of half the world’s population,” said Kevin P. Gallagher, Boston University professor of international relations, emphasizing the influence BRICS countries have... “They are a force regardless of their growth rate, which will remain faster when averaged than the West’s for years to come.”

With friends like the IMF and EU, Ukraine doesn’t need enemies
Kyiv may face disillusionment with Europe if it follows austerity prescriptions
...we don’t have to look to Greece or Spain to see the risks of signing on to a program of fiscal austerity and reforms run by the IMF and its European directors. Ukraine has had its own recent experience to draw on: In just four years, from 1992 to 1996, Ukraine lost half of its GDP as the IMF and friends took the wrecking ball to the Russian and Ukrainian economies. Ukraine’s economy didn’t start growing again until the 2000s. For comparison, the worst years of the U.S. Great Depression (1929 to 1934) saw a real GDP loss of 36 percent...BRICS promise to do things differently, offering no-strings-attached loans that do not permit the lender to meddle in a country’s domestic affairs...a direct affront to the World Bank and IMF, whose "one size fits all" loan programs mandate unpopular austerity measures and budget cuts while encouraging rapid export production — a model that developing world economists say stunts a poor country’s domestic institutions, undermines its leadership and molds it into a commodities workshop for the West. Argentina, whose IMF-imposed budget cuts in the 1990s hastened the country toward default, is often held up as the poster child for Bretton Woods reform....

Russian President Vladimir Putin's telephone conversation with US President Barack Obama,
July 17, 2014, 20:30
In line with a previous agreement, Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the United States Barack Obama. The parties had a detailed discussion of the crisis in Ukraine.  Vladimir Putin reiterated the need for an immediate unconditional cessation of hostilities by both sides in the southeast of Ukraine, which has already led to numerous casualties and has forced hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians to seek refuge in Russia. He stressed the inadmissibility of opening fire at Russia’s territory by the Ukrainian army, which led to casualties among Russian citizens. The President of Russia briefed his American counterpart on the measures taken by Russia to resume consultations by the contact group with the participation of representatives from southeast Ukraine. Hope was expressed that the American side will also contribute to the start of peace talks in Ukraine. This, in part, is the purpose of Russia’s initiative to bring OSCE observers to Russian-Ukrainian border points as soon as possible.
Vladimir Putin expressed disappointment with the contentious new decision made by Washington to introduce so-called sectoral sanctions that would be detrimental to both bilateral ties and to efforts to find a compromise in resolving the crisis in Ukraine. The parties also exchanged views on the situation in the Middle East.
Vladimir Putin shared his impressions of the main outcome of his trip to Latin America and of the BRICS summit .
The Russia leader informed the US President of the report received from air traffic controllers immediately prior to their conversation about the crash of a Malaysian airplane over the Ukrainian territory.

Shot-down jet launches war in Ukraine to a global level
7/20 NYT Peter Baker,
WASHINGTON — From the start, the telephone call did not go well. Dispensing with pleasantries, President Vladimir Putin launched into an edgy and long-winded complaint about the new U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia the day before. President Obama, on the phone from the Oval Office on Thursday morning, responded that Russia was arming rebels in Ukraine — citing, among other things, the anti-aircraft weapons that the United States believed they had been sent. “This is not something we’re making up,” Obama said, according to a U.S. official. Then, more than halfway through the tense, hourlong call, Putin noted, almost in passing, that he had received a report of an aircraft going down in Ukraine.Putin was vague about the details and the conversation moved on.
But in that instant, the monthslong proxy war between East and West took a devastating turn, one that would shift the ground geopolitically amid the charred wreckage and broken bodies in a Ukrainian wheat field.

After the military plane was shot down Monday, fighting escalated. On Tuesday, a missile destroyed a residential building in Snizhne, a town 12 miles from the Russian border controlled by rebels. Ukraine said a Russian plane carried out the attack; the rebels blamed the Ukrainian military. Whoever was responsible, a new air war was clearly under way. On Wednesday evening, Ukraine said Russia sent a MiG-29 fighter jet across the border to engage with Ukrainian Su-25s. In the ensuing dogfight, one Su-25 was shot down while another was damaged but escaped...
Putin was also in the air above Eastern Europe that afternoon, returning from a six-day tour of **Latin America aboard his presidential Airbus.. The Russian jet apparently crossed paths near the doomed Malaysian plane, both flying in roughly the same airspace over Warsaw at 33,000 feet about 37 minutes apart, according to an * Interfax report.
As soon as it became clear the downed plane was not a military craft but a civilian passenger plane, Russian media shifted its explanation from a separatist attack to a variety of other explanations, including the possibility that Ukraine’s military shot it down. Putin then released a statement 40 minutes after midnight blaming Ukraine. “Certainly,the government over whose territory it occurred is responsible for this terrible tragedy” he said.
Obama was on board his Marine One helicopter heading to Andrews Air Force Base when news broke that Ukraine was blaming a Russian-made missile. Dan Pfeiffer, the president’s senior adviser, received an email and told Obama about the allegation.Once he boarded Air Force One to take him to Delaware and New York for a policy speech and political fundraisers, Obama was briefed by his national security aide, Brian McKeon. By the time the president landed in Wilmington, it was clear he would need to address the disaster.
Once in New York, he headed to his first fundraiser at an upscale apartment. In a den, where a secure telephone line had been set up, Obama convened a telephone conference call with his staff for an update. He was told most of the dead were from the Netherlands and so arranged to call the Dutch prime minister....

Claims that missile downed Malaysia airliner likely to take months to prove
...Obama pledged a full investigation and said evidence indicated the plane was downed by a surface-to-air missile fired from a region controlled by Russia-backed separatists. The U.S. representative at the United Nations, Ambassador Samantha Power, went further, hinting Russian technicians might have played a role in the launch.But the probe into the crash is likely to take a year or more, experts said, and it faces many challenges. And until its conclusions are known, it’s unlikely that anyone will be held accountable. The National Transportation Safety Board and the FBI plan to send investigators to Ukraine, but the obstacles are legion: Finding pieces of the missile could prove difficult, the plane’s wreckage may be hard to access, and the location of the black box recorder, often crucial to learning about crashes, was unclear. Some experts questioned whether once located it would provide any useful information...
Ukrainian officials have said they believe Russian separatists near the town of Torez used a Soviet-era Buk mobile anti-aircraft missile system to down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 as it flew along a well-known commercial air corridor over eastern Ukraine on its way from Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Obama echoed that conclusion, and he criticized Russia Friday for aiding the separatists...

Ukraine Says It Can Prove Russia Supplied Arms System That Felled Jet

"We know with confidence, with confidence that the Ukrainians did not have such a system anywhere near the vicinity at that point in time. So it obviously points a very clear finger at the separatists," Kerry told CNN. 7/20/.com/2014/07/20/politics/plane-pressure-on-putin/>

[Kerry] slammed as "grotesque" the manner in which "drunken separatist soldiers" were allegedly "unceremoniously piling bodies into trucks, removing both bodies, as well as evidence, from the site". Insurgents defended their actions, a rebel chief saying they moved bodies "out of respect for the families".
...The government in Kiev, sensing a moment to marshal international attention against rebels seeking to break away from Ukraine, has accused them of blocking access to the bodies and the crash site and delaying what is already a very painful process for the families of the dead....The rebels insist they are cooperating, they want to turn the 247 bodies they recovered as of Sunday over to international representatives. But they say those officials have not arrived because the Ukrainian government is frightening them from entering rebel territory....rebel leader Alexander Borodai said Sunday the plane’s flight recorder had surfaced, but he wanted to give it to the international experts, not Ukrainians...

09.00 Authorities in the self-styled Donetsk People's Republic said the bodies will remain in the refrigerated train until international experts arrive. Alexander Borodai, prime minister of the breakaway republic, believes they have also recovered black box recorders from the crash scene and they would only hand over the flight data boxes to the International Civil Aviation Organization. ...

He said separatists had not hindered their access so far.... VLADIMIR PUTIN: I want to reiterate Russia’s position with regard to the current situation in Ukraine....Everything possible must be done to ensure that international experts can work in safety at the crash site. Representatives from the Donbass region, Donetsk, Ukraine’s Emergency Situations Ministry, and Malaysian experts are already working at the site, but this is not enough.It is essential that a full-fledged group of experts under ICAO aegis, an appropriate international commission set up for the task, be able to work at the crash site. We must do everything possible to ensure their complete and guaranteed safety and provide them with the humanitarian corridors they need for their work....
