Quoted from "Moscow contacted rebels charged with downing MH17: Investigators'"

  "There was almost daily telephone contact between the leadership of the DPR
  and their contacts in the Russian Federation," JIT [Joint Investigative
  Team] said in a statement on Thursday, using the acronym of the Donetsk
  People's Republic rebels.

  The calls mostly took place over secure phones provided by Russian security
  forces, it said.

Maybe the next time the FBI claim that the existence of encryption will lead
to the collapse of civilisation, they can ask the countries in the Joint
Investigative Team (Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Ukraine)
for help.  The use of Russian military encryption doesn't seem to have
bothered them much.
