Dutch Probe: MH17 Downed by Russian Missile Launcher


A Dutch investigation into the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which was shot down over Ukraine in July 2014, has reportedly found that a missile was fired from an area controlled by Ukraine rebels,THE DAILY BEAST reports.

Officials told victims’ families they could prove a mobile BUK missile launcher was moved into Ukraine from Russia and then moved back after the Boeing 777 was shot down, killing all 298 people on board. Investigators reportedly used communications intercepts and radar data as evidence in the probe, which lasted two years. The Russian government has repeatedly denied culpability in the disaster. Russian military officials on Monday said radio-location data proves the missile was not launched from a rebel-controlled area. Families of the victims were privately briefed on the investigation early Wednesday, and officials are expected to announce the preliminary results of the findings later in the afternoon.

  1. Putin is a truly evil man to whom innocent lives are valueless, whether in this incident or in Syria.
    He somehow bamboozled both the Bush (“I looked into his soul and saw a good man”) and Obama (“Reset Button”) administrations. Hopefully the next President will be more cognizant of the soulless, avaricious individual he or she will be dealing with.

  2. Of course a Russian BUK Missile launched from pro-separatist Ukrainian territory shot down Flight MH17 !
    See all my posts on this subject over the last two years. The incredible truth tellers and detectives at Bellingcat have done a sterling job on this case.

    A word of warning for the Russians:

    “It doesn’t matter what you think we will all know the truth and what is correct in the end !”
