Is Putin's Non-Denial An Admission That Russia Shot Down MH17?

Anti-corruption blogger and Putin opponent, Alexei Navalny, offers the following advice to Putin in a piece in Echo Moskvy:
“It seems to me it would be simpler if the separatists and Russia say the following: The aircraft was destroyed by armed forces operating in east Ukraine. No one planned this action. This was a tragic error. Such things happen but that does not make things easier. We share the grief and we are shamed. We will pay compensation to the victims’ families.”
Navalny offers this “simple solution” knowing Putin cannot take it. It would cost Putin his domestic support and humble him in the eyes of the world. It is also against his KGB training, which teaches always deny, deny, no matter what.
