- Any element of truth in the rumours that Ukrainian ATC
requested the a/c descend FL330 before it was allegedly hit
by a SAM?

MH17 was at FL 330 all the time over Ukrainian territory. Minutes before crash, controller proposed fl350 to mh17 due to another traffic, but crew said that were unable.
anyway...350 couldn't help, as "Buk" can hit target at alt. up to 25 km.
