"Russia strived to assure that the airliner was shot down by the Ukrainian Buk located not far from the crash site and the General Staff provided the photos to confirm this. The pictures submitted by the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces allegedly showing the location of Buk systems on the territory of the Luhansk region near Teplychne village. In fact, the radio-radar battalion base was under control of the terrorists at the time of the terrorist attack and never had any Buks at service," the official said.
According to the Security Service representative, the Russian allegedly satellite photos of the anti-aircraft missile battalion near Avdiivka in the Donetsk region with allegedly deployed Ukrainian Buks in the fields nearby are also fakes.
"All these pictures provided by the General Staff of the Russian Federation Armed Forces were fabricated within four days. The Security Service has all the proof that these pictures are not consistent with the reality," Naida said.
Head of NSDC information centre Andrii Lysenko said that the ATO forces did not use short-range ballistic missiles against the terrorists.
Earlier, CNN reported citing three U.S. officials that the Ukrainian army used short-range ballistic missiles in the area of anti-terrorist operation (ATO) in the Donbas.
