The federal government labelled the shooting down of a Malaysian passenger plane over Ukraine "a brutal act of terror" on Friday, saying it was ready to help investigate the tragedy.All 298 people aboard the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 — which was travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur — were killed when the aircraft was shot down over contested territory in eastern Ukraine Thursday.The U.S. has said it believes the jetliner was likely downed by a missile and has added that it can't rule out "technical assistance from Russian personnel."In Toronto, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said Canada clearly condemned what he referred to repeatedly as an attack."Whatever has happened, whatever caused this attack, whoever unleashed the explosives that brought down the plane, it is an act of terror in our view," he said.Alexander pointedly noted that the government also condemned Russia's "unjustified, illegal aggression" in Ukraine, adding that Canada is working with its allies to ensure the international response to Moscow is "robust."Violence in eastern Ukraine between government forces and pro-Russia rebels erupted a month after Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in March.Earlier this week, the rebels claimed responsibility for shooting down a Ukrainian military jet with a portable surface-to-air missile and the government in Kyiv charged that a military transport plane was shot down by a missile fired from Russian territory."It is certainly relevant to the investigation that this attack took place over territory held by separatists," said Alexander.
