There was a NOTAM issued for the route a few hours before and they apparently were in another route by deviated due to weather. Either way no one should be shooting at aircraft traveling at 33,000ft in this combat zone. It was clearly not a threat and most likely an inexperienced crew shot at something they thought was much lower (some sources are saying that a Ukranian military cargo flight was expected in the same area today, but the previous flight was shot down yesterday so the Ukranian military had halted the flights).
Yeah, it was more to the north than normally. Air France and British Airways seem to be avoiding Ukraine for some time before this happened.
